One of the most notorious figures in American history, Benedict Arnold, is also one of the most misunderstood. For the first half of the American Revolution, Arnold was a successful battlefield commander. But how did the hero of Saratoga become the archvillain of West Point? Why did Arnold change sides? Had he been bought off or driven out? Prizewinning journalist and historian Willard Sterne Randall unravels the web of personal drama and political intrigue that led to the infamous betrayal. Citing previously unpublished financial records impounded since 1780 and more than 100 letters between Arnold and his second wife, Peggy Shipton, Randall explores the full story of Arnold's decision.
