George Washington, by Paul Johnson

Scroll down to content

I’m a sucker for books about the Revolutionary War, its causes, its implications, and the people involved, so was glad to see this relatively short book in a new series called “Eminent Lives” published by Harper Collins.

It’s only 120 pages or so, so very quick to read, and focuses on the parts of Washington’s life that aren’t the War. A good book by a great historian that’s worth reading.

  1. I teach 5th grade social studies that focuses on the colonial period. I love to read different books that help me tell the stories behind the story of the people and the struggles of the time. This is one of those books.
