Becky Akers is a free-lance writer and historian whose work has appeared in the Christian Science Monitor, the Washington Post, Barron’s, the New York Post, American History Magazine, the Independent Review, Military History Magazine, the Ottawa Citizen, lewrockwell.com, forbes.com and many other publications and websites.
M Genl B Arnold is her second novel. Though M Genl B Arnold is fiction, it factually, dramatically explores one of history’s biggest conundrums: why did Major General Benedict Arnold, the most ingenious, skilled and dedicated warrior of the American Revolution, suddenly turn his coat to side with the British Empire? Contemporary political enemies blamed Arnold’s treason on his being the greediest man ever, and historians seldom think outside that box. But Becky Akers’ original research reveals a very generous, committed libertarian who battled powerful American politicians hoping to overthrow the king so they could rule instead.
