The rousing story of Lafayette--"adopted son" of George Washington--and his vital role in the American Revolution.
In this long-overdue history of Marquis Gilbert de Lafayette, acclaimed French author Gonzague Saint Bris recounts Lafayette's invaluable contributions to the American War of Independence and, later, the French Revolution of 1789.
Saint Bris's new volume recounts the young Lafayette's personal friendship with George Washington, who went so far as to refer to Lafayette as his "adopted son," and his pivotal role as Washington's aide-de-camp in helping establish the fledging American nation.
