Auricchio's "The Marquis" is a major biography of the Marquis de Lafayette, French hero of the American Revolution, a book that looks past the storybook general and selfless champion of righteous causes who, at the age of nineteen, volunteered to fight under George Washington, casting aside fortune and family to advance the transcendent aims of liberty and justice.
