Washington's spies : the story of America's first spy ring by Alexander Rose( Book )

12 editions published between 2006 and 2014 in English and held by 1,177 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the summer of 1778, General Washington needed to know where the British would strike next. To that end, he unleashed an unlikely ring of spies in New York charged with discovering the enemy's battle plans. Washington's band included a young Quaker torn between political principle and family loyalty, a swashbuckling sailor addicted to the perils of espionage, a hard-drinking barkeep, a Yale-educated cavalryman, and a peaceful, sickly farmer who begged to let him retire but always came through in the end. Personally guiding these everyday heroes was Washington himself. In an era when officers were gentlemen, and gentlemen didn't spy, he possessed a talent for deception--and proved an adept spymaster. The men he mentored were dubbed the Culper Ring. Historian Rose tells an unknown story of the Revolution--the murderous intelligence war, gunrunning and kidnapping, defectors and executioners--that has never appeared in the history books.--From publisher description

Turn : the story of America's first spy ring by Alexander Rose( )

Soon to be a series on AMC Basing his tale on remarkable original research, historian Alexander Rose reveals the unforgettable story of the spy ring that helped America win the Revolutionary War. For the first time, Rose takes us beyond the battlefront and into the shadowy underworld of double agents and triple crosses, covert operations and code breaking, and unmasks the courageous, flawed individuals who inhabited this wilderness of mirrors'including the spymaster at the heart of it all, George Washington. Previously published as Washington's Spies "Alexander Rose tells this important story with style and wit."'Pulitzer Prize'winning author Joseph J. Ellis "Fascinating ... Spies proved to be the tipping point in the summer of 1778, helping Washington begin breaking the stalemate with the British. ... [Alexander] Rose's book brings to light their crucial help in winning American independence."'Chicago Tribune "[Rose] captures the human dimension of spying, war and leadership ... from the naive twenty-one-year-old Nathan Hale, who was captured and executed, to the quietly cunning Benjamin Tallmadge, who organized the ring in 1778, to the traitorous Benedict Arnold."'The Wall Street Journal "Rose gives us intrigue, crossed signals, derring-do, and a priceless slice of eighteenth-century life. Think of Alan Furst with muskets."'Richard Brookhiser, author of Founding Father "A compelling portrait of [a] rogues' gallery of barkeeps, misfits, hypochondriacs, part-time smugglers, and full-time neurotics that will remind every reader of the cast of a John le Carre novel."'Arthur Herman, National Review
