Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“For many Americans who attended public school, the French and Indian War usually merited little more than a brief mention in their American history class … William Nester’s book deals with this cherry picking of events by classroom text books and immediately sets the stage for a campaign that came close to turning the outcome of the war in favor of the French.” — On Point: The Journal of Army History

“An in-depth military history covering the conflicts throughout the year … highly recommended.” — Wisconsin Bookwatch

“The story of the battle at Fort Ticonderoga is an important tale and at the heart of the struggle for North America. This is an excellent piece of research, and Nester tells the story well.” — William M. Fowler Jr., author of Empires at War: The French and Indian War and the Struggle for North America, 1754–1763
