Críticas:

James Bond is a rank amateur compared to the heroic efforts of theCulper Ring. Brian Kilmeade and Don Yaeger s work demonstrates why thestory of the secret six should be anything but a secret in American history.

HARVEY MACKAY, author of "Swim with the SharksWithout Being Eaten Alive"


A rollicking read by Kilmeade and Yaeger, acknowledging a long overduedebt to six American heroes.
KARL ROVE


We would not have won the Revolution and secured our freedom, were itnot for the leadership of George Washington and the courage of the spies he set inmotion. "George Washington s Secret Six" is a gripping and informative read.

CONGRESSMAN PETE KING, chairman ofthe Counterterrorism and Intelligence Subcommittee, House ofRepresentatives Committee on Homeland Security


It would have been an honor to have served with Robert Townsendand the rest of the Culper spies in any of the deep-cover

intelligence operations I spearheaded over twenty-seven years.

WAYNE SIMMONS, coauthor of "The NatanzDirective"; CIA Outside Paramilitary Special Operations


Freedom is not free, never has been, and neverwill be. Kilmeade and Yaeger have done a wonderful jobin reminding us all of the cost. Great read.

GENERAL TOMMY FRANKS (U.S. Army, ret.)


A historical gem. I loved it.
DONALD TRUMP"

"This is my kind of history book. Get ready. Here's the action."

--BRAD MELTZER, bestselling author of The Fifth Assassin and host of Decoded


"A powerful new book...that reads like a modern-day spy thriller."

--THE BLAZE


"The tale of patriotism and daring."

--THE WASHINGTON TIMES


"A fascinating read, highlighting some of our nation's unknown heroes."

--GENERAL STANLEY MCCHRYSTAL (U.S. Army, retired)

Reseña del editor:

As a Long Islander endlessly fascinated by events that happened in a place I call home, I hope with this book to give the secret six the credit they didn t get in life. The Culper spies represent all the patriotic Americans who give so much for their country but, because of the nature of their work, will not or cannot take a bow or even talk about their missions.

Brian Kilmeade

When General George Washington beat a hasty retreat from New York City in August 1776, many thought the American Revolution might soon be over. Instead, Washington rallied thanks in large part to a little-known, top-secret group called the Culper Spy Ring.


Washington realized that he couldn t beat the British with military might, so he recruited a sophisticated and deeply secretive intelligence network to infiltrate New York. So carefully guarded were the members identities that one spy s name was not uncovered until the twentieth century, and one remains unknown today. But by now, historians have discovered enough information about the ring s activities to piece together evidence that these six individuals turned the tide of the war.


Drawing on extensive research, Brian Kilmeade and Don Yaeger have painted compelling portraits of George Washington s secret six:

  • Robert Townsend, the reserved Quaker merchant and reporter who headed the Culper Ring, keeping his identity secret even from Washington;
  • Austin Roe, the tavern keeper who risked his employment and his life in order to protect the mission;
  • Caleb Brewster, the brash young longshoreman who loved baiting the British and agreed to ferry messages between Connecticut and New York;
  • Abraham Woodhull, the curmudgeonly (and surprisingly nervous) Long Island bachelor with business and family excuses for traveling to Manhattan;
  • James Rivington, the owner of a posh coffeehouse and print shop where high-ranking British officers gossiped about secret operations;
  • Agent 355, a woman whose identity remains unknown but who seems to have used her wit and charm to coax officers to share vital secrets.


In George Washington s Secret Six, Townsend and his fellow spies finally receive their due, taking their place among the pantheon of heroes of the American Revolution.
