Editorial Reviews

Review

5 out of 5 stars A Truly UNIQUE Book! "A review of this book can be summed up in a single word ― UNIQUE! As told by Mount Vernon's Bastille key itself (yes, by the key), it provides an absorbing look at the character of key leaders in the American and French Revolutions, notably Washington and Lafayette. While the novel narrative traces the key's historic travels from the perspective of the pun-slinging anthropomorphic iron key, the research is serious and the content dense with illuminating facts. Half a valuable reference source, half a fascinating story, fully recommended!"
―LTG Dave R. Palmer, premier military historian and US Army Lieutenant General (ret), former Superintendent of the United States Military Academy at West Point

Masterfully Written, Educating and Entertaining!  "I salute my West Point classmate for providing us a diligently researched history of our historic 18th century connection with the French. Bill's adaptation of using the Bastille Key as the first person main character presenter is simply brilliant. The reader is drawn into the story with bewilderment, anticipation and excitement, while always being educated and introduced to fascinating little known facts. I highly recommend this book to everyone of all ages. A GREAT READ!" Gary Dolan, author, speaker, businessman, decorated combat veteran, Hall-of-Fame Ranger, and inspirational leader

About the Author


Bill Bahr is a retired telecommunications executive. A graduate of West Point, he served in the U.S. Army Signal Corps, working in Germany, Cambodia (the U.S. Embassy in Phnom Penh), and Korea before moving into commercial telecommunications. Along with earning three masters degrees and two patents, Bill held marketing/sales directorships at major corporations. His work helped spark the revolution in facsimile machines and the build-out in cellular systems and the internet, with both Bill and his products receiving many public accolades. For example, the prestigious magazine "Electronic Business" headlined one of his product developments as a "Secret Success Story." The American Management Association heralded this same effort as doing business "Japanese style to beat the Japanese at their own game."

Starting Bill off on a creative career, one of his own, early inventions received notice in many publications, to include "Newsweek" and "Playgirl." In addition, his innovative mnemonic method "Learn Morse Code in One Hour (or even 10 minutes)!" helped thousands pass amateur-radio 5 word-per-minute code tests -- and is now free on-line.

Bill currently lives in Chicagoland and volunteers in a number of community service organizations. He is an active participant in Rotary, VFW, and CHARACTER COUNTS!, where he has served in various leadership roles. In his spare time, Bill unabashedly admires George Washington and studies strategic action. The book "George Washington's Liberty Key" is a result of Bill's curiosity and extensive reading about Mount Vernon's Bastille key and the extraordinary, enabling, and ennobling character of George Washington. You can find out more about his research at LibertyKey.US . Also, check out Bill's book"Strategy Pure and Simple: Essential Moves for Winning in Competition and Cooperation."
