Benedict Arnold is an heroic, fearless military leader willing to fight, bleed and die for the cause. He's also George Washingtons favourite soldier and close personal friend. Time and time again he proves himself in some of the most perilous and significant battles of the War. He falls passionately in love with a young manipulative British sympathiser, Peggy. But blinded by desire and increasingly unhappy with the bitter rivalry of his commander, Arnold now feels his bravery and loyalty is being taken for granted. He takes steps from which he cannot retreat...on the road to treason.
