One Dead Spy - by Nathan Hale
This graphic novel is a biography of the short-lived American spy Nathan Hale. Told by the spy himself to his own executioner (hangman) through a series of flashbacks, this is also a great summary of the first part of the American Revolution and its causes. It's really a wonderful book for anyone interested in this time period, and a good introduction to early American history and military history for reluctant, or any readers.
This series has two books (#2: Big Bad Ironclad), and I can't wait to see what else the author comes up with. Excellent book!
