Wing Commander author and historian Dr. William Forstchen and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich have published a book about the Revolutionary War. In To Try Men's Souls, the best-selling co-authors offer three personal perspectives on George Washington's fight for American freedom. The Washington Times has more on the story.
After transporting readers back in time with historical novels set during the Civil War and World War II, former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich and historian William R. Forstchen have released "To Try Men's Souls: A Novel of George Washington and the Fight for American Freedom."
Mr. Gingrich, who, as reported last week in The Washington Times, plans to evaluate his prospects for a 2012 presidential bid, stressed that his story's protagonist, the country's first commander in chief, is an especially resonant profile in courage in these uncertain times.
