The Ascent of George Washington by John Ferling Audio Book Mp3-CD

£14.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Even compared to his fellow founders, George Washington stands tall. The first president has long been considered a stoic hero, holding himself above the rough-and-tumble politics of his day.
Now John Ferling peers behind that image, carefully burnished by Washington himself, to show us how Washington deftly screened a burning ambition behind his image of republican virtue-but that image, maintained not without cost, made him just the leader the overmatched army, and then the shaky young nation, desperately needed. Ferling argues that not only was Washington one of America's most adroit politicians-the proof of his genius is that he is no longer thought of as a politician at all. (14 CDs)
