The Real Benedict Arnold

Out of stock
Benedict Arnold was a heroic soldier and patriot, yet the only monument to his bravery at the Battle of Saratoga is a statue of a leg. Why? Because his leg, wounded in the battle, was believed to be the only part of Arnold that did not later betray his country. This biography tells the fascinating, tragic story of Arnold's life-his conversion to the Revolutionary cause, his military adventures, and the frustrations that led him to turn against the country to which he had devoted his life. Notes. Sources. Index.
