Acclaim for The French War Against America

""A very readable and provocative tale of early Franco-American relations that will please some and infuriate others.""
--John Buchanan, author of The Road to Valley Forge: How Washington Built the Army That Won the Revolution

""Harlow Unger has written an amazing tour de force revealing France's two-faced role in the American Revolution and the early Republic. The book also has enormous relevance for contemporary politics. Don't miss it.""
--Thomas Fleming, author of Liberty : The American Revolution

Praise for Lafayette

""Harlow Unger has cornered the market on muses to emerge as America's most readable historian. His new biography of the Marquis de Lafayette combines a thoroughgoing account of the age of revolution, a probing psychological study of a complex man, and a literary style that goes down like cream.""
--Florence King, Contributing Editor, National Review.
