This book argues that epiphany occurred at Great Meadows, the battle that essentially started the French and Indian Wars.

When it was over, a third of his men lay fallen. Washington used that experience of defeat to achieve eventual greatness. In addition to this narrative, the author examines the significance of Washington's actual dispatches, along with recent archaeological findings from Great Meadows."@en ;
