It is 1781, and Washington and his army have spent three years engaged in near-constant skirmishing against the British. The enemy position in New York is far too strong. Then two crucial reports reach Washington. First, the French have briefly committed a fleet to the American coast. Second, Cornwallis is withdrawing to Yorktown to establish a new base. And Washington embarks on one of the most audacious moves in American military history.
