"George Washington's Secret Spy War," John Nagy

George Washington’s Secret Spy War is the untold story of how George Washington took a disorderly, ill-equipped rabble and defeated the best trained and best equipped army of its day in the Revolutionary War. Using George Washington’s diary as the primary source, author John A. Nagy reveals a surprising chapter in George Washington's life, one spent steeped in espionage. Before passing away in 2016, Nagy had become the nation’s leading expert on the subject, discovering hundreds of spies who went behind enemy lines to gather intelligence during the American Revolution, many of whom are completely unknown to most historians. George Washington's Secret Spy War will be published September 20th from St. Martin's Press.
