Author Info
Newt Gingrich
Newt Gingrich has a doctorate in history. 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.
"Newt Gingrich has an easy way with words; he's silver-tongued as well as silver-haired."
From the Publisher
Annotation Conservative political icon Newt Gingrich returns to creative writing with his second installment in the fictionalized history of George Washington, VALLEY FORGE, following 2009's TO TRY MEN'S SOULS. The former United States representative from Georgia again teams with collaborator William R. Forstchen to deliver a thoroughly-researched period novel recounting the American revolutionary climate. This time Washington and his army struggle against the harsh winter and limited provisions supplied by an upstart Congress handicapped by poor funds and British resistance. Gingrich and Forstchen pose the question: did this trying experience establish some fundamental outline for American resilience to adversity?
Editors Note 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.
