Abstract:

Originally published in 13 volumes as France and England in North America in 1889, this classic work by the most famous American historian of this period has been skillfully edited by the distinguished historian John Tebbel into a single volume. While retaining the original focus, the graceful style and clear chronology, the Editor has eliminated the repetitive detail and archaic phrases. The result is a wonderfully readable edition of the definitive account of the struggle for the North American continent from the landing of the first French adventurer in 1534 to the Peace of Paris in 1763. The struggle for control of the continent was dominated by some brilliant commanders - Champlain, Jogues, La Salle, Frontenac, Washington, Howe, Wolfe and Montcalm - and eventually resulted in the ejection of the French from North America. As Parkman notes, 'On the American continent the war was ended, and the British colonists breathed for a space as they drifted unwittingly towards a deadlier strife.' For the British victory only served to sow the seeds of their own defeat in the American Revolution. -- from https://www.bookdepository.com (Dec. 7, 2015).
