“American Traitor: General James Wilkinson’s Betrayal of the Republic and Escape from Justice” by Howard W. Cox

Howard Cox’s “American Traitor” examines the career of the notorious Gen. James Wilkinson, whose corruption and espionage exposed the United States to grave dangers during the early years of the republic. Wilkinson’s military career began during the Revolutionary War and continued through the War of 1812. As he rose to the rank of commanding general of the U.S. Army, Wilkinson betrayed virtually everyone he worked with to advance his career and finances. Cox picks apart Wilkinson’s misdeeds with the eye of an experienced investigator.


Howard W. Cox is a former trial attorney in the U.S. Army Judge Advocate General’s Corps, former staff counsel of the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations, and former federal prosecutor and assistant inspector general for investigations at the CIA.
