Beginning with a skirmish in the Pennsylvania backcountry involving an inexperienced George Washington, the Iroquois chief Tanaghrisson, and the ill-fated French emissary Jumonville, Anderson reveals a chain of events that would lead to world conflagration. Weaving together the military, economic, and political motives of the participants with unforgettable portraits of Washington, William Pitt, Montcalm, and many others, Anderson brings a fresh perspective to one of America's most important wars, demonstrating how the forces unleashed there would irrevocably change the politics of empire in North America.

The Rest of the Story
I really enjoyed learning so many details from the Seven Years War. So many more Americans played a crucial roll in this conflict, both here and overseas that I was unaware of. Not just George Washington, but Lees, Franklin, Adams and more. British officers who would play rolls in during our Revolution either were involved in the “first world war” or had relatives who did.

Excellent Historical Account
The origins in the American Revolution lay in the 7 Years War. This Anderson's work provides an excellent, in-depth account of that war. He provides the perspective of most participants. It was a fascinating look at a time that few remember or appreciate.
