The Ohio Country, 1755. General Edward Braddock’s British army has been annihilated, and the forest runs red with blood. The French & Indian War has begun. Now French-led raiding parties use terror to roll English settlements in the British colonies of Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Maryland back toward the Atlantic Coast. In this dark time Virginia turns to its most experienced young leader, George Washington. For three years Washington matches wits with "the most skillful of enemies." Finally the British government launches new campaigns against the French in America, and George Washington will face his greatest challenges of all.
