The Fight With France for North America: 3rd edition - A. G. Bradley. Beginning with the Treaty of Aix-la-Chapelle, and the conditions and characteristics of the British-American colonies in Canada in 1750, the author lays the background for the French designs against British expansion. He then proceeds to describe the various clashes between the two European powers in America, including the fight at Great Meadows, Braddock’s Expedition, and Johnson’s futile campaign on Lake George, that led to the formal declaration of war between France and England in May, 1756. The fighting continues through the battles at Louisbourg, Fort William Henry, Ticonderoga, Frontenac, and the Plains of Abraham as well as the deaths of Wolfe and Montcalm. The British triumphed in the end and the French surrendered Montreal and their possessions in North America to Great Britain. (1908), 2015, 5½x8½, paper, index, 391 pp. 101-B2331 ISBN: 0788423312
