I found this book to be very interesting. Most people hear the name Benedict Arnold and outwardly show disgust, but this book shows that there was much more to this American traitor than what we initially think of. Although there's no excuse that what he did was one of the highest sins you might commit against your country, I understand why he did so. To be honest, other people in the colonies didn't really make his decision that shocking, seeing as how Congress and other military leaders treated him. It is rather sad, actually. Anyway, an insightful biography. It was relatively easy to understand (as long as you keep track of all the names of generals and keep them straight). 4 stars.
Benedict Arnold is well-known as the traitor who turned West Point over to the British during the Revolutionary War, but until then, he was one of the outstanding generals on the American side. What led him to desert the cause that he had given so much to?
