Washington Book Launch in Rhode Island, 18 Feb.

Gerald M. Carbone will launch his new book, Washington: Lessons in Leadership, with a talk at the Rhode Island Historical Society on Thursday, 18 February. The event is scheduled to take place at Aldrich House, 110 Benevolent Street, in Providence, from 6:00 to 8:00 P.M. Books will be available for purchase and signing after the presentation.

Ged Carbone wrote me:

The book is basically a biography of George Washington’s military career from his firing of the opening salvo to the Seven Years’, through the Battle of Yorktown and his stirring Newburgh Address, in which Washington saved the American Revolution from devolving into a military coup.
The book is in Palgrave Macmillan’s Great Generals Series, for which Ged has already written a book on Nathanael Greene.
