He is referred to as the "first in war, first in peace, and first in the hearts of his countrymen." Having recently traveled out to the state bearing his name, I decided it best to brush up on some George Washington history. The book I decided to read is titled, Washington: A Legacy of Leadership, from the new series on the American Generals.
As a volume focusing on his military career, this book started with his first military missions and focused on his key part in shaping the country through heading up the Continental Army and the path that brought him to the point of leading the new nation as her first President. I learned a lot about what went into the rigors of warfare at the timeâ€”much hardship and sacrifice definitely were required of all men. Through it all, Washington's integrity and resolve made him the man for each of the responsibilities given him. Even while a young soldier, Washington was a man of principle and self-control and one who trusted in the providence of God. He was a flawed man, but due to his willingness to be used by God, he fulfilled his purpose in life and set the foundation for a strong nation. Through the stories and accounts the author was able to bring to the table of Washington and his men, I have a greater appreciation not just for the man but also for my country.
Disclosure: I received a complimentary copy of Washington: A Legacy of Leadership through Book Sneeze, in exchange for my honest review.
