Overview

“A riveting, massively documented epic [that] overturns textbook clichés…. This impassioned study throws valuable light on our history.” —Publishers Weekly

Empire of Fortune focuses on the so-called “French and Indian War”—the bitter last-ditch struggle between the British and the French empires in the New World. Challenging traditional historians, Francis Jennings reveals in absorbing detail the political and military realities behind the myths.
