A fictionalized account of Benedict Arnold's betrayal of West Point to the British.

Revolutionary War hero Benedict Arnold is treated with contempt by his contemporaries, and seduced by his love for a Loyalist woman to betray the country he has fought so valiantly for.

This is an outstanding episode. Once again, Gordon Heath takes command. I wish all of the historical episodes were this good, and that all episodes were up to this standard. The cast is uniformly good, but Mr. Heath is so compelling. What a voice! This is a favorite of mine.
