Editorial Reviews

Review

This accessible history illuminates an obscure but significant chapter in American history. ― Publishers Weekly

“Head provides an authoritative, well-researched account of George Washington’s role in resolving this near-crisis.” ―
Library Journal

“Meticulous and balanced,
A Crisis of Peace lays out the vitally important circumstances that led to a critical moment in our nation's history and Washington’s indispensable role in preserving the peace.” ― Shelf Awareness

“This work is written in a flowing and engaging style that is accessible and yet maintains rigorous standards for scholarship. Head writes with a sense of humor that is sure to bring some extra delight to readers. For anyone interested in the end of the war and the social, political, and economic factors of the time, this book is a must read.” ―
Journal of the American Revolution

"Vividly written. Captures the perilous period when Washington’s fundamental decency meant more to the nation than more glorious qualities might have." -- David O. Stewart, bestselling author of The Summer of 1787

"A superb historian who writes in beautiful detail about the heat of political competition. With a rich cast of characters, this book delivers a keen chronicle of a much-vaunted ‘conspiracy.’" -- Andrew Burstein, Charles P. Manship Professor of History, Louisiana State University

"David Head tells the story masterfully with new details and expert drama, putting the crisis in both a contemporary context and showing its relevance for all ages." -- Douglas Bradburn, President and CEO, George Washington’s Mount Vernon

"A thoroughly original take on one of the most critical moments in history that would determine no less than the success or failure of the American Revolution." -- Craig Bruce Smith, author of American Honor: The Creation of the Nation’s Ideals during the Revolutionary Era

"A masterful job telling the story of how the American Revolution ended. Thoroughly researched and superbly written, keeping the reader engaged until the end. A must have book." -- Brian Mack, The Fort Plain Museum, Fort Plain, NY

"With an energetic pen and a are for a good phrase, David Head recounts in intimate detail one of the United States’ most perilous moments." -- Philip Levy, author of Where The Cherry Tree Grew: The Story of Ferry Farm, George Washington’s Boyhood Home
