The gripping story of how George Washington, together with a dedicated coterie of advisers both foreign and domestic--Marquis de Lafayette, Baron von Steuben, the impossibly young Alexander Hamilton, and John Laurens--he set out to breathe new life into his military force. Against all odds they manage to turn a bobtail army of citizen soldiers into a professional fighting force. 16 pages of illus.
