Summary
In the winter of 1777, Washington and his demoralized army retreat from Philadelphia, arriving at Valley Forge where they discover that their repeated requests for a stockpile of food, winter clothing, and building tools have been ignored by Congress. In spite of the suffering and deceit, Washington endures all, joined at last by a volunteer from Germany who begins the hard task of recasting the army as a professional fighting force capable of facing the British head-on and changing the course of history
