In the Hurricane's Eye
In a narrative that moves from Washington's headquarters on the Hudson River, to the wooded hillside in North Carolina where Nathanael Greene fought Lord Cornwallis to a vicious draw, to Lafayette's brilliant set of maneuvers across Tidewater Virginia, Philbrick details the epic and suspenseful year through to its triumphant conclusion. In the Hurricane's Eye reveals the fate of the American Revolution depended, in the end, on Washington and the sea.
