Resources for The Notorious Benedict Arnold


Steven Sheinkin

provides us with an interesting look at the most noted traitor in American history.  We learn about Arnold’s boyhood and how he may have been ‘shaped’ to later become a traitor to his country; he was a reckless, daredevil of a young man who craved and received praise and attention.  Using first hand accounts from the period from those who knew Arnold, Sheinkin paints Arnold as a hero and a ‘brilliant strategist’ who was loved by those in his command at the start of his military career.  This easy-to-read account of hero turned traitor provides an interesting look at the times and the man without whom we may not have won the revolution.  This is a must read for anyone, young or old, interested in American history, the Revolutionary War, and knowing more about the notorious Benedict Arnold.  (Stan Cianfarano)
