Storyline

On the glorious battlefields of the American Revolution, two great generals distinguished themselves; George Washington and Benedict Arnold. Washington is remembered as America's founding father, Arnold as America's most notorious traitor. Benedict Arnold rose from humble origins to become the most respected and feared of America's generals. He won brilliant military victories against the English colonists and was Washington's favorite soldier. But two conflicting forces battled inside Arnold's heart; a deep concern for his country and his passionate love for an enchanting and manipulative Philadelphia woman, Peggy Shippen. Blinded by desire, Arnold defected to the English army, orchestrating an attempt to assassinate his own mentor, George Washington.

Desperate times call for desperate deeds.
31 January 2003 | by (Muskogee OK) – See all my reviews

This is an outstanding A & E production with kudos for director Mikael Salomon. A very well written drama chronicling the fall of the infamous Benedict Arnold(Aidan Quinn)from distinguished Revolutionary War general and respected advisor to General George Washington(Kelsey Grammer)to reluctant traitor. Action packed insight to incidents of the American Revolution. Quinn and Grammer are to be commended. History buffs may want to pick this one apart, but it is well worth watching.
