A Novel of Valley ForgeeBook - 2011
Fast's stunning account of the brutal winter at Valley Forge, where thousands of American revolutionaries made a harrowing sacrifice for freedom General George Washington's twelve thousand soldiers march into Valley Forge, Pennsylvania, under-fed and under-clothed, their frozen feet leaving bloody tracks in the snow. Shortly after the soldiers establish quarters for the cold months ahead, disease begins to rip through the camp. The men, helpless against sickness and despair, are facing the longest winter of their lives-and their survival will determine the fate of their young nation. Passionate and unforgettable, Conceived in Liberty is one of Fast's rawest accounts of the brutality of the Revolutionary War, and of the heroism of its soldiers.
