Beschreibung

Taking place during the most critical period of our nation's birth, The First Conspiracy tells a remarkable and previously untold piece of American history that not only reveals George Washington's character, but also illuminates the origins of America's counterintelligence movement that led to the modern day CIA.

In 1776, an elite group of soldiers were handpicked to serve as George Washington's bodyguards. Washington trusted them; relied on them. But unbeknownst to Washington, some of them were part of a treasonous plan. In the months leading up to the Revolutionary War, these traitorous soldiers, along with the Governor of New York, William Tryon, and Mayor David Mathews, launched a deadly plot against the most important member of the military: George Washington himself.

This is the story of the secret plot and how it was revealed. It is a story of leaders, liars, counterfeiters, and jailhouse confessors. It also shows just how hard the battle was for George Washington and how close America was to losing the Revolutionary War.

In this historical masterpiece, New York Times bestselling author Brad Meltzer teams up with American history writer and documentary television producer, Josh Mensch, to unravel the shocking true story behind what has previously been a footnote in the pages of history. Drawing on extensive research, Meltzer and Mensch capture in riveting detail how George Washington not only defeated the most powerful military force in the world, but also uncovered the secret plot against him in the tumultuous days leading up to July 4, 1776.

This program includes a bonus conversation with the authors.

Kritische Rezensionen

  • In 1776 a secret group of General George Washington's trusted bodyguards laid a trap against his life. This is the story of that murderous plot and how America's earliest counterintelligence group (which would later grow into the CIA) foiled it.

    This book is just ordinary. i'll try another book to read and check if its worth.
  • (5/5)
    Fascinating story about an extraordinary man and a story that reads like a novel, but true and well-researched. I highly recommend that history buffs and mystery lovers get this book. Great narration, too!

    A dark history lesson about the birth of our nation - Brad Meltzer and Josh Menche investigate a centuries-old mystery that will change how you view the American Revolution. George Washington was, and still is, an inspiration for honor, modesty, and liberty. But before the real fighting began, a secret battle had already begun, and there was a target on his back.

    I don’t usually read non-fiction but the title grabbed my interest. I was completely mesmerized with the way the story unfolded and how much I learned about the start of the revolution.
  • (5/5)
    This is an amazing telling of history in the form of a novel, so full of history and heart and raw beginnings and the part played by George Washington.
  • (5/5)
    Very well written. Fantastic information and not dry. Some non-fiction books can be boring even with good subject matter. This isn’t one of the boring ones.
