The French and Indian War: Deciding the Fate of North America

The French and Indian War: Deciding the Fate of North America - Walter R. Borneman

The French and Indian War: Deciding the Fate of North America

This narrative history of epic 18th-century wilderness battles and pre-Revolutionary rumblings of independence presents the triumphs and tragedies of this frontier struggle. 8-page B&W insert. 15 maps.

In the summer of 1754, deep in the wilderness of western Pennsylvania, a very young George Washington suffered his first military defeat, and a centuries-old feud between Great Britain and France was rekindled. The war that followed would be fought across virgin territories, from Nova Scotia to the forks of the Ohio River, and it would ultimately decide the fate of the entire North American continent--not just for Great Britain and France but also for the Spanish and Native American populations.

Noted historian Walter R. Borneman brings to life an epic struggle for a continent--what Samuel Eliot Morison called "truly the first world war"--and emphasizes how the seeds of discord sown in its aftermath would take root and blossom into the American Revolution.
