Best Brian Kilmeade Books
Many people do not know that the author dedicated a decade of his life to stand-up comedy. Some of Kilmeade’s best books include:
George Washington’s Secret Six: In 1776, many supporters of the American Revolution were convinced that the campaign was at an end. George Washington hadn’t given them any hope upon which they could cling. If anything, by retreating from New York City in August, he had encouraged some of them to abandon hope.
However, all was not lost. Washington fled because the military might of the British was superior. He couldn’t deny this fact. And if he wanted to win, Washington had to change tactics. That is exactly what he did when he sent a secret network of spies to infiltrate New York.
Robert Townsend led the group. The identity of the reserved quaker and merchant was so closely guarded that not even Washington knew who he was. Austin Roe wasn’t just another tavern keeper.
He risked everything he held dear, including his life to protect the mission that Robert and the other members of the Culper ring were fighting to accomplish. Caleb Brewster was young and, to some, a little too brash.
After all, the longshoreman took a lot of pleasure in baiting their British enemies. But they relied on him to move messages from New York to Connecticut and back. Abraham Woodhull was critical to the mission.
Even though he was a little too nervous, the bachelor’s business and family ties gave him plenty of excuses to journey to Manhattan. James Rivington owned a coffeehouse and print shop, a role that doesn’t sound all that important until one realizes that several high-ranking British officers frequented the shop and they did not hesitate to gossip about their operations.
The final member of the Culper spy ring is known only as Agent 355. The woman’s identity is still unknown to this day. Brian Kilmeade uses all the information that historians have learned thus far about the Culper ring to reveal the role the spies played in turning the tide of the war.
Thomas Jefferson and the Tripoli Pirates: President Jefferson dedicated his first few days in the oval office to the eradication of the Tripoli pirates. They had kidnapped and perpetrated atrocities against American sailors and their ships for far too long. However, Jefferson’s attempts to blockade the Barbary Coast encountered a wrinkle.
The USS Philadelphia was captured by pirates after running aground in Tripoli Harbor. This book tells the story of Stephen Decatur, the American sailor who snuck aboard the USS Philadelphia and then set it aflame. He accomplished this task despite the torrent of enemies working to stop him.
