George Washington was one of the Founding Fathers, and the first President of the US. Regarded as “the father of the country”, he was also a successful commander during the American Revolutionary Wars. Washington’s vision and intelligence nevertheless helped lay the foundations for the country and the way it is governed, with many conventions, such as cabinet government, put in place during Washington’s two terms as US President. This book explores the extraordinary life of the first US President.
