520    The image of the Baron de Steuben training Washington's 
       ragged, demoralized troops in the snow at Valley Forge is 
       part of the iconography of our Revolutionary heritage, but
       most history fans know little more about this fascinating 
       figure.In the first book on Steuben since 1937, Paul 
       Lockhart, an expert on European military history, finally 
       explains the significance of Steuben's military experience
       in Europe. Steeped in the traditions of the Prussian army 
       of Frederick the Great-the most ruthlessly effective in 
       Europe-he taught the soldiers of the Continental Army how 
       to fight like Europeans. His guiding hand shaped the army 
       that triumphed over the British at Monmouth, Stony Point, 
       and Yorktown. And his influence did not end with the 
       Revolution. Steuben was instrumental in creating West 
       Point and in writing the "Blue Book"-the first official 
       regulations of the American army. His principles have 
       guided the American armed forces to this day.Steuben's 
       life is also a classic immigrant story. A failure in 
       midlife, he uprooted himself from his native Europe to 
       seek one last chance at glory and fame in the New World. 
       In America he managed to reinvent himself-making his 
       background quite a bit more glamorous than it really was-
       but redeeming himself by his exceptional service and 
       becoming, in a sense, the man he claimed to be.
