An account of an American Colonial solider during the French and Indian War. A first-person, "I was there" account of the defeat of British Col. Braddock by a guerilla attack force of combined French soldiers and Indian warriors. Present was the Colonel's aide, a young military aide named George Washington, soon to be Father of the United States of America. It's a rare and fascinating look into the mind of a Colonial American who decides to be soldier and fight for his Queen and State - the State of Virginia. Book form available at minimum price. I'm particular proud of finding this one.
