Finished One Good(read) Book This Week
- George Washington’s Secret Six: The Spy Ring that Saved the American Revolution by Brian Kilmeade and Don Yaeger: The subtitle may oversell the story, but it is a quick read that offers some interesting insights into the mechanics of 18th century espionage and how a band of Patriots trapped in British-besieged New York provided Continental Army leaders with useful intelligence that thwarted more than one Redcoat plot. 3 stars out of 5.
