Bob Drury has written an inspiring account of Valley Forge, the Continental Army winter camp where George Washington turned the tide of the American Revolution. At the end of 1777, the Continental Army was starving; the men were half-naked and ill equipped; the British were in command of Philadelphia; and the Continental Congress in exile, its treasury depleted. Over the winter of 1778, Washington and his officers embarked on a mission to transform his troops into a professional fighting force.
