George Washington’s Secret Six: (Young Readers' Edition) The Spy Ring that Saved the American Revolution
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. Long unrecognized, the secret six are finally receiving their due among the pantheon of American heroes.
This vivid and accessible young readers' adaptation of the New York Times bestseller features an exclusive new introduction, extensive back matter, and eye-catching art throughout.
