Product Description

The Culper Spy Ring can have much of the success of the American Revolution attributed to their work. . .and they were so secretive that one spy's name was only discovered in the 20th century, and another -a woman-- remains unknown even today. George Washington's Secret Six explores this sophisticated intelligence network, painting compelling portraits of the lives of its members and their efforts to aid in the American Revolution. Black-and-white plate section in the middle.

Publisher's Description

*Now with a new afterword containing never-before-seen research on the identity of the spy ring’s most secret member, Agent 355

“This is my kind of history book. Get ready. Here’s the action.” —BRAD MELTZER, bestselling author of The Fifth Assassin and host of Decoded

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.

Drawing on extensive research, Brian Kilmeade and Don Yaeger have offered fascinating portraits of these spies: a reserved Quaker merchant, a tavern keeper, a brash young longshoreman, a curmudgeonly Long Island bachelor, a coffeehouse owner, and a mysterious woman. Long unrecognized, the secret six are finally receiving their due among the pantheon of American heroes.

Author Bio

Brian Kilmeade cohosts Fox News Channel’s morning show “Fox & Friends” and also hosts the nationally syndicated radio show “Kilmeade & Friends.” He lives on Long Island. 

Don Yaeger has written or co-written twenty-three books, and lives in Tallahassee, Florida.

Editorial Reviews

“A powerful new book . . . that reads like a modern-day spy thriller.”
The Blaze

“A tale of patriotism and daring.”
The Washington Times

“Anyone who believes that foreign espionage is pointless should read this book. More importantly, anyone who thinks the founding generation is irrelevant to modern America must read this book.”
The Daily Caller

“A fascinating read, highlighting some of our nation’s unknown heroes—heroes who never sought credit or recognition. Brian Kilmeade places them in their proper historical context—as brave patriots who defended the American Revolution.”
General Stanley McChrystal (U.S. Army, retired)

“Freedom is not free, never has been, and never will be. Kilmeade and Yaeger have done a wonderful job in reminding us all of the cost. Great read.”
General Tommy Franks (U.S. Army, retired)

“Fast paced, factual, entertaining . . . and important!”
Michael Hayden, former director of the National Security Agency and the Central Intelligence Agency

“A historical gem. I loved it.”
Donald Trump

“We would not have won the Revolution and secured our freedom were it not for the leadership of George Washington and the courage of the spies he set in motion. George Washington’s Secret Six is a gripping and informative read.”
Congressman Pete King, chairman of the Counterterrorism and Intelligence Subcommittee, House of Representatives Committee on Homeland Security

“Thrilling and accessible…. one of the more significant, compelling, and fascinating pieces of the country’s history.”
Breitbart.com

    If I had to sum this book up in one word it would be FASCINATING! I've enjoyed reading about American history my whole life and I would say that I know quite a bit about George Washington, but Brian and Don's book has introduced another side of this great general and later president. I was immediately struck by the honesty that Washington put forth in his shortcomings and outright failures. Without that character trait our nation could have easily been turned in a different direction.

    While I loved the insight into Washington, what particularly intrigued me was the Culper Spy Ring itself. Here are six seemingly ordinary people who did extraordinary things while staying under the radar. After reading the book it is hard to imagine such a significant outcome in our American history without this brave group of people. The group was made up of five men, whom we know the identity of, and one woman that still remains a mystery.

    If you are reading the paperback edition of this book then you are in for a real treat. With this edition the authors have included an extensive portion about this mystery woman. This woman was always referred to as Agent 355. Her real identity remains a mystery all these years later but the authors have compiled a list of women who could possibly be the elusive Agent 355. They give the reasons for and against each female being the one. Again, absolutely fascinating.

    I think every high school student and beyond should read this intriguing book. It makes a pivotal time in our American history absolutely come alive. If you are a homeschool family this really should be worked into your curriculum. I promise you won't regret a moment you spend on reading this book.

    I received a copy of this book to facilitate my review.
