James Thomas Flexner (1908-2003) was the author of the prize-winning, four-volume biography of George Washington, for which he won a National Book Award and a special Pulitzer Prize citation. His one-volume abridgment, Washington: The Indispensable Man (1974), is the basis for Sterling Signature's illustrated edition. Flexner was also the author of The Young Hamilton (on Alexander Hamilton), Mohawk Baronet (on Sir William Johnson), and The Traitor and the Spy: Benedict Arnold and John Andre, and many books on American art.
Historian James Thomas Flexner's multi-award-winning and magisterial four-volume biography of George Washington moved beyond what the author termed “the marble image” to reveal the man behind the icon. This updated illustrated edition--based on the bestselling 1974 one-volume abridgement--enhances Flexner's graceful prose with an assortment of rare maps, lost letters, and historical images, giving readers an unmatched perspective on the man whose inspired leadership as soldier and statesman made him the indispensable rallying point of a daring revolution and the bulwark of a new nation.
