From the New York Times bestselling author of In The Heart of the Sea--soon to be a major motion picture starring Chris Hemsworth and directed by Ron Howard--comes a surprising account of the middle years of the American Revolution, and the tragic relationship between George Washington and Benedict Arnold.
In September 1776, the vulnerable Continental Army under an unsure George Washington (who had never commanded a large force in battle) evacuates New York after a devastating defeat by the British Army.

After four years of war, America is forced to realize that the real threat to its liberties might not come from without but from within.
