What made the experience of listening to The French and Indian War and the Conquest of New France the most enjoyable?
This book is the first I've read that explained how France lost it's hold in the new world.
What was one of the most memorable moments of The French and Indian War and the Conquest of New France?
It brought to light and life the struggle for power in the 18th century western nations, and showed how the inattentive, capricious leadership of the French royals cost them everything by setting the stage for the revolution.
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Philip Benoit?
Anyone who actually speaks French. He murdered the pronunciation of the names and titles to the point of distraction. For me, this was the major flaw in an otherwise well written, thoroughly documented book. Simon Vance would have done much better.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
How France lost the new world.

The narrator’s inability to pronounce any French names correctly distracts from the content. I would have given it a higher rating if the narration was better.
I wanted to like this audio book. I tried and tried but the narrator, despite his French sounding name, is utterly incapable of pronouncing even the simplest of French words correctly. He was clearly not on task. I was alarmed at one point when Australians entered the fray in place of the author's intended Austrians.
It is so very difficult to listen to that I have been reduced to using it as a sleep aid of late. I have finally come to my senses and decided to stop the masochism. I shall return it and look for another book to help me learn about this period of history.
