DOWNLOAD Washington The Indispensable Man 107 After than two decades this dramatic and concise single volume distillation of James Thomas Flexner's definitive four volume biography George Washington which received a Pulitzer Prize citation and a National Book Award for the fourth volume has itself become an American classic Now in a new trade paperback edition this masterful work explores 400 pages 52 chapters 8 pages per chapter roughlyThe structure of Washington The Indispensable Man was perfect for this reader I read one or two chapters per sitting and never strayed from the path into a forest of detailI have longed to read about Washington for several years but not got round to it I went as far as going into four bookshops in London and StAlbans before going on holiday last year Not one word on the manI was shocked that such a gigantic figure was absent from the shelves In fact I could not believe it But it was true The shop was full of celebrity cook books and diet books I noted on my way out booklessI know Washington discomforted than one important Britisher in fact he founded his whole career on discomforting us But it was a long time ago and he did ad value to the transplantation of Anglo Saxon ways across the water and take the project on a little He even wanted to join the British armyI was in tears when I finished reading James Thomas Flexner s masterly biography I cld see Tobias Lear secretary and friend ministering to the old boy I cld sense his earlier concern at Washington sitting there in sodden clothing after riding his farms in vile weather Would you take a little something for that sore throat asks Lear No says Washington And then Washington can hardly breathe is dying It all happens swiflty The prospect of the doctors bleeding the sick man time and time again was unbearable You idiots screams the modern reader No no but that is how it wasSo too that is how it was over the slaves They Washington included were all slave owners They sought freedom from we British while keeping others as slaves Except Washington was a little different Unwilling to free his slaves during his lifetime for fear of provoking his peers and possibly prompting a split in his infant country he deftly provided in his will that they were to be freedIt seems he has his critics though Perhaps I don t understand the politics of his time or of modern America to comprehend why but for he remains an overwhelmingly inspiring man on many countsHis hospitality conviviality and once out of office his desire for good company and conversation were strongly endearing traitsHis energy and enthusiasm for his beloved farms his joy of riding out his taste and creativity in designing his own home were also the marks of a fine spiritHis leadership was masterly He held things together against the odds The farmers were not up to a pitched battle with the British regiments and so they mostly avoided them allowing the British to blunder to defeat with a little help from the cheese easting surrender monkiesI was astonished to learn that Washington cld if he had wished it probably become a king But he did not wish it Unlike Oliver Cromwell he waled away from the army to the astonisment of European aristocrats He gave up power and thus won eternal fame and brought in a new form of governmentYet he was no Napoleon Things often seemed to not go right for him But his genius was that he persisted in spite of thisThe army is cross with him They have not been paid They are rebellious He speaks to them Things could easily slide out of control He fumbles to pull out a pair of spectacles There is something about his demeanour something about his vulnerability something about him He wins them overThis happens time and time again He wins people over Jay goes off to London and comes back with a treaty which the Jefferssonains hate Washington talks people round He takes people with himFlexner did the same for me He took me with him in the strength of his portrayal of Washington the man which was on a par with his portrayal of Washington the titan of history I felt as if I knew Washington as I read those 52 chapters I did not feel as if I was reading about a remote figure I was at Washington s side every step of the way The issue of how to react when revolutionary France and Britain went to war felt acutely real Washington must have been tormented by the frictions between Hamilton and Jefferson with the French doing their best to stir things up And then he is president and then he is president again And then he finally gets a break with the thunderous roars of a loving crowd ringing in his ears But it doesn t last He s called back yet again to organise and army to face a possible French invasionHe just wants to stop But
