Promotional Information

About 400 years ago, Samuel de Champlain and Henry Hudson led separate expeditions to explore the waters of the valleys now known by their names. A century and a half later, the conflict between France and England for control of that region came to a head, with a war that determined the fate of the region, the continent, and two empires as well.

"Appropriate for circulating collections at larger public and academic institutions and for smaller collections (including in high schools) where there is a need or interest." - Library Journal "Overall, this is a very worthwhile work. It seems clear that much work went into including the details of names and numbers along with extensive descriptions of works constructed by the combatants and the terrain involved in key events. Even with the level of detail, the book reads well and one does not get a feeling of getting bogged down. I would definitely recommend this to anyone interested in this topic or in colonial operations in this period in general." - The Journal of America's Military Past
