Benedict Arnold’s infamous last act of treason during the Revolutionary War has remained a puzzle to historians. Joyce Lee Malcolm’s The Tragedy of Benedict Arnold: An American Life unravels the man behind the myth, from his brilliant wartime military exploits to his troubled relationship with the newly formed Congress. American Historical Review calls the book “a work of genuine excellence, as persuasive in its argument as it is unsettling in its implications. Malcolm’s prose is both vigorous and elegant.” Sponsored by the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute.
