"Zeroes in on the interesting, irreverent, long-ignored tidbits that shape behavior in all conflicts and important periods of history."-- The Denver Post

What made the founding fathers so great (or were they?). And don't forget the founding mothers. We have intrigue and skullduggery with spies from Nathan Hale to Benedict Arnold, with enlightening stops on the distaff side of espionage for Patience Wright (no relation to our esteemed author), Lydia Darragh, and Ann Bates.
"[Mike] Wright uncovers the gamut of the revolutionary era with a highly readable, breezy narrative style, and some of his speculations eloquently illustrate the ironies always present in grand historical movements. . . . This work will inform, amuse, and provide an interesting perspective on the Revolution."-- Booklist
