    ePUB Thomas Fleming Ó Ó The Perils of Peace Epub Ñ The Perils Kindle - perils epub, peace pdf, The Perils epub, The Perils of Peace PDF/EPUBThis book purports to show how close we came to losing the Revolutionary War It is in the time after the last major battle and before the signing of the peace treaty that the United States faced the most danger of return to the British Empire Now nearly forgotten figures such as Arthur Lee and Ralph Izard worked hard to derail Benjamin Franklin’s efforts not because they did not want a peace treaty but because of personal animosity Other better known figures such as John Adams and John Jay were not diplomatic in their endeavors and came close to alienating the French court and others The author does a convincing job of pointing out that true victory relies on the acts of tac
