Rate this:
In this biography, the author traces the interwoven histories of Washington and the nation he helped to create, defend and guide toward the future. Alden recreates the major events of Washington's personal and professional life, including his boyhood in rural Virginia, his early careers as a surveyor and then a soldier in the French and Indian War, and his staid but enduring marriage. The core of the biography is devoted to Washington's leadership roles - his assumption of the post of commander in chief of the Continental Army, his part in the Constitutional Convention and his presidency. As Alden reveals, Washington's greatness lay in his total devotion to the cause of the American nation and in his wisdom as a leader.
