Format: Paperback
This is the story of a young George Washington during the French and Indian War, who miraculously survived a battle which killed every other officer on horseback, and most of the Bristich and American soliders. In fact, Washington himself had two horses shot out from under him and four holes shot in his coat. This is a valuable story in American history and of God's providence, one that was widely told until the early 20th century, but is relatively unknown today. The author provides background events leading up to the battle to provide context. With relatively little knowledge of the French and Indian War, I was able to follow along. This was an enjoyable and informative story. There is a map of the battle area in the back and a timeline of events.

My complaint is that the documentation could have been improved. There is a list of primary (and secondary) sources in the back, but nothing indicating what came from each book. Even when there are long quotes that are essential to the point of the story, we're not told which of the books they came from. That would be exceedingly helpful, both in substantiating what he's said (see the review calling into question the accuracy of some of the account), but also for those interested in learning more. Still, with this being a story that's no longer widely shared, this is a valuable book.

My 12 year old daughter just "read" the audio version of this book in a car trip. It has inspired her first true interest in history. Now she wants to own the actual book so she can have access to the photos and maps. There was enough background information about the climate leading to the battles, that she now sees how things relate, and how people can see the same event through opposing views. It shows how minor decisions can have big impacts. She loves how the Indian Chief came to the conclusion that the God whom he didn't believe in was certainly the only one that could have kept George alive in battle. It showed how impossible his odds of living were and highlighted how history is full of people just like us making great contributions to all.

This book is about a hero that the educational culture has tried to destroy by its half truths and out right lies. There are many leaders from our past that could inspire us . Some how we have given into the culture that idolizes those in the pop culture that are any thing but a good example. This man was chosen by Gods providence to set the start of this nation on the path to greatness by his personal adherence to values that that he aspired to build into his own life by daily practice.

This is an easy read and I would recommend it for older grade school kids. For those who believe this country's founding and it's Founders were directed by God, this story will illustrate that. For those who do not necessarily believe this, it will provide insight into why many Americans do feel this way. David Barton masterfully uses primary sources to tell the story of the Bulletproof George Washington.

This is a great book. Easy to read and wonderfully written. It details a story which used to be well-known but nobody talks about anymore. I read this to my fourth grade class (in the public school even!) this week. They loved it. Every child and adult in America should know this true story about George Washington and the hand of God that was evidently upon him.

I found this book absolutely fascinating! There is no doubt in my mind that God protected George Washington, having in mind that he was to serve as the winning general during the Revolutionary War and then go on to be the country's first President. It is a pretty quick read and therefore is worth reading again...soon. Highly recommend!

David Barton is a MUST read for every student. He is the only writer that I have found that writes the truth of history without embellishment or a slant on the facts. His facts are true and extremely well researched. He is a pleasure to read and listen to as he know his history so well you'd think he was sitting in the room with George Washington and all of our Founding Fathers as well with all of the other men and women he had studied and written about. He is truly unique in his perspective and keeps his FACTS true.

Good reading about how blessed and protect our founding father and Father of our nation was, because of the Great Work he was needed to complete. He is not a deist, George Washington was a firm believer in God and was selected as a faithful servant to establishing this land for the Almighty's purposes. No matter what the liberals, progressives, DemonKrates and haters of our nation brainwash our children in to learning. Thanks communist core and Obama.
