Description:

“A brilliant history of our least-known wars on our most-ignored frontier—our northern border with Canada” (Los Angeles Times).Americans often think of the Civil War as the conflict that consolidated the United States, its military values, and practices. But there was another, earlier, and more protracted struggle that shaped American geopolitics and military culture.     InConquered into Liberty, Eliot Cohen describes how five groups—the British, French, Americans, Canadians, and Indians—fought over the key to the North American continent: the corridor running from Albany to Montreal, known to Native Americans as the “Great Warpath.” Cohen explores how a distinctively American approach to war developed along these 200 miles. And he reintroduces characters we thought we knew—an admirable Benedict Arnold, a traitorous Ethan Allen, and a devious George Washington. A gripping read grounded in serious scholarship,Conquered into Libertywill enchant readers for decades to come.
