After chronicling the Continental army’s bitter winter at Valley Forge, Gingrich and Forstchen leap ahead several years in their George Washington series. In 1781, the British have a stranglehold on New York, and the revolutionary momentum has all but stalled. A bold and decisive move is needed to end the impasse, and General Washington hatches a risky plan to engage the enemy forces at Yorktown. All they need to do is to march 300 miles south without being detected to launch a surprise offensive.
