    George Washington, Gentleman Warrior

    Learn about American icon George Washington from a uniquely British perspective, as award-winning historian Stephen Brumwell discusses his new book, George Washington: Gentleman Warrior. Brumwell's book focuses on Washington as a young frontier soldier and forty-something Continental Army commander, illustrating how Washington's reliance on English models of "gentlemanly" behavior and on British military organization, was crucial to his leadership of the fledgling Continental Army. Don't miss this chance to hear from the British historian who last year successfully championed George Washington as "Britain's Greatest Foe"! Book sales and signing to follow.
