George Washington's Secret Six : The Spy Ring That Saved the American Revolution Paperback / softback

Description

*Now with a new afterword containing never-before-seen research on the identity of the spy ring's most secret member, Agent 355 -This is my kind of history book.

Get ready. Here's the action.- --BRAD MELTZER, bestselling author of The Fifth Assassin and host of Decoded When George Washington beat a hasty retreat from New York City in August 1776, many thought the American Revolution might soon be over.

Instead, Washington rallied--thanks in large part to a little-known, top-secret group called the Culper Spy Ring.

He realized that he couldn't defeat the British with military might, so he recruited a sophisticated and deeply secretive intelligence network to infiltrate New York.

Drawing on extensive research, Brian Kilmeade and Don Yaeger have offered fascinating portraits of these spies: a reserved Quaker merchant, a tavern keeper, a brash young longshoreman, a curmudgeonly Long Island bachelor, a coffeehouse owner, and a mysterious woman.

Long unrecognized, the secret six are finally receiving their due among the pantheon of American heroes.
