Inhaltsangabe: Empires in the Mountains is the first volume to focus entirely on the campaigns and forts along the Lake Champlain, Lake George, and Hudson River corridor during the French and Indian War (1754-1763). It covers the epic battles of the war in the lake valleys, as well as the arduous task of building fortresses and warships in the wilderness of northern New York. Relying on original documents, the book provides a firsthand human dimension in recounting the extraordinary events of the war. Nicholas Westbrook, director emeritus at Fort Ticonderoga, has suggested that "Not since Francis Parkman. . .has the epic story of the "Warpath of Empire" been told with such sweep and such rich detail." Gary Zaboly, author of A True Ranger, called Empires "a commanding history. . .highly readable and authoritative, easily the best single book" on the subject. 150 illustrations.
Über den Autor: Russell P. Bellico is a professor emeritus at Westfield State College in Massachusetts.
