The odds were against George Washington as he marched the defeated Continental army toward an old ironworks known as Valley Forge. After losing two important battles, the untrained and poorly equipped soldiers now faced winter. With no quarters, little food, and few supplies, how could they survive? Yet over the freezing winter of 1777-78, the Continental army transformed itself from a ragtag outfit into a professional army. Valley Forge tells how inspiration, determination, and a genius for organizing enabled Washington, his talented staff, and his courageous soldiers to overcome extreme hardships and remake the army.
