In "To Try Men''s Souls, New York Times"-bestselling authors Gingrich and Forstchen cast a new light on the year 1776 and the man who would become the father of our nation, George Washington. "Valley Forge" picks up the narrative a year after Washington''s triumphant surprise attack on Trenton. Much has changed since then.
From the Publisher:

A riveting, personal look at one of our country's first heroes in the second captivating novel of the George Washington series by Newt Gingrich and William R. Forstchen, the New York Times bestselling authors of To Try Men's Souls

It’s the winter of 1777, a year after Washington’s triumphant surprise attack on Trenton, and the battered, demoralized Continental Army retreats from Philadelphia. At Valley Forge, they discover that their requests for supplies have been ignored by Congress. With no other options, for weeks the army freezes under tents in the bitter cold. The men are on the point of collapse, while in Philadelphia the British live in luxury. In spite of the suffering, Washington endures, joined by a volunteer from Germany, Baron Friederich von Steuben. With precious little time, von Steuben begins recasting the army as a professional corps capable of facing the British head-on—something it has never accomplished before—in the process changing the course of history.   

Valley Forge is a compelling, painstakingly researched tour-de-force novel about survival, transformation, and rebirth. It chronicles the unique crucible of time and place where Washington and his army, against all odds, were forged into the force that would win a revolution and found the United States of America.

First elected to office in 1978, he has been the Republican representative from Georgia's Sixth District, and served as Speaker of the House of Representatives for the 104th Congress. He stepped down from that position in 1998 after a surprisingly strong showing by the Democrats in the congressional elections.
