George Washington – first in war, first in peace and first in the hearts of his countrymen….and America’s first spymaster. Spying may be the world’s second oldest profession, even recounted in the Old Testament. Unlike England, that already had a long tradition of the Great Game, George Washington had to make it up through trial and error. Discover who, the how, the successes and failures of America’s first foray into intelligence gathering.
