The First Conspiracy

Author : Brad Meltzer

Genre : Nonfiction

This is a well-crafted history detailing the secret plot to kill George Washington after he had been made Commander-in-Chief of the Continental Army on June 14, 1775. He is to lead this army against the mightiest military nation in the world. For this newly created army and its officers, almost everything goes wrong: there is never enough funds, enough provisions, enough ammunition, or enough officers and men. They are an unruly group, drunken and disorderly at times, or sick. Yet, somehow, some way, even with the threat of assassination hanging over his head from some of his most trusted soldiers, George Washington leads his troops in what he considered the most important assignment in history: the fight for independence.

Brad Meltzer and Josh Mensch unravel the secret plot behind what has previously been a footnote in the pages of history.
