Synopses & Reviews
America's most notorious traitor is brought to life as Jean Fritz relays the engrossing story of Benedict Arnold -- a man whose pride, ambition, and self-righteousness drove him to commit the heinous crime of treason against the United States during the American Revolution.
-- Fritz gives excellent coverage of the confusion and individualism of the American colonies and the Revolutionary War effort.... This book could engender an understanding of the colonial period and, as shown by Arnold's life, the many considerations that affect adult decision-making. -- School Library Journal, starred review
A highly entertaining biography. -- Horn Book
