George Washington's Secret Six- The Spy Ring That Saved the American Revolution

George Washington's Secret Six audiobook cover art

Written By-  Brian Kilmeade & Don Yaeger
Narrated By- Brian Kilmeade

Well, February has now come and nearly gone.  I decided not to do lace and hearts for this month's selection.  Instead, I began thinking about President's Day and found this book about our first President.  I really enjoyed this story about espionage that helped our new country escape the strong arm of the British crown.  I was drawn into the story that referred to Revolutionary War history that I was familiar with and filled in the gaps with little-known facts of the Secret Six.  I really liked a quote from the book's Epilogue.  An observation of a British Major George Beckwith:"Washington did not really outfight the British, he simply outspied us!"  I encourage you to try this book out.  We have this book in audio CD and digital download for your listening pleasure and of course in regular book form also.
