In the summer of 1778, with the war poised to turn in his favor, General George Washington desperately needed to know where the British would strike next To that end, he unleashed his secret weapon an unlikely ring of spies in New York charged with discovering the enemy s battle plans and military strategy Washington s small 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 friend of the doomed Nathan Hale, and a peaceful, sickly farmer who begged Washington to let him retire but who always came through in the end Personally guiding these imperfect everyday heroes was Washington himself In an era when officers were gentlemen, and gentlemen didn t spy, he possessed an extraordinary talent for deception and proved an adept spymaster The men he mentored were dubbed the Culper Ring The British secret service tried to hunt them down, but they escaped by the closest of shaves thanks to their ciphers, dead drops, and invisible ink Rose s thrilling narrative tells the unknown story of the Revolution the murderous intelligence war, gunrunning and kidnapping, defectors and executioners that has never appeared in the history books But Washington s Spies is also a spirited, touching account of friendship and trust, fear and betrayal, amid the dark and silent world of the spy.
