1781:Washington and his army have spent three years in a bitter stalemate. At last, he learns that the French have briefly committed a fleet to the American coast, and that British General Cornwallis has decided to withdraw into Yorktown. Washington decides to embark on one of the most audacious moves in American military history. He will force march nearly his entire army more than three hundred miles in complete secrecy. He must pray that the French navy is successful in blockading Chesapeake Bay, so that he can lay siege to Cornwallis and capture his entire force. The stalemate must be broken, otherwise the American spirit will crumble. American Sergeant Peter Wellsley is tasked with neutralizing any loyalists who might provide warning. On the other side, Allen Van Dorn receives bits and pieces of reports that something is afoot. When one of the former friends is captured, both must decide where their true loyalties lie during the heat of the Battle of Yorktown as Washington's professional army, once a "rabble in arms," executes the war's most decisive contest. With Victory at Yorktown, critically acclaimed authors Newt Gingrich and William R. Forstchen have reached the pinnacle of their talents in a tour de force narrative of one of America's most important heroes.
