Acclaim for The French War Against America

"A very readable and provocative tale of early Franco-American relations that will please some and infuriate others."
—John Buchanan, author of The Road to Valley Forge: How Washington Built the Army That Won the Revolution

"Harlow Unger has written an amazing tour de force revealing France's two-faced role in the American Revolution and the early Republic. The book also has enormous relevance for contemporary politics. Don't miss it."

Praise for Lafayette

—Florence King, Contributing Editor, National Review
