9781841766836: Monongahela 1754–55: Washington’s defeat, Braddock’s disaster (Campaign)

Osprey's examination of one of the key campaigns of the French and Indian War (1754-1763). On 9 July 1755 amid the wilderness of North America, Britain suffered one of the most humiliating defeats in her history. General Braddock's army, a mixture of British regulars and American militia, was shattered, losing over 900 men from a force of 1,300. Braddock was killed and the remnants of his army rescued by his aide, Colonel George Washington. The origins of this defeat can be traced back to the death of a junior French officer little more than a year before in a relatively minor skirmish with a party of Virginian militia commanded by the same George Washington. René Chartrand examines the subsequent chain of events that ultimately sparked a world war.

Book Description Bloomsbury Publishing PLC, United Kingdom, 2004. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Patrice Courcelle (illustrator). Language: English . Brand New Book. This book examines the first military encounters of the Seven Years War. When the French built forts along the Ohio River valley to support their claims to the area, a clash with the British became inevitable, and when in 1753 they refused to evacuate the region, British thoughts turned to eviction. Tensions rose further when a party of French negotiators were killed by Washington, and in retaliation, French troops besieged Washington at Fort Necessity. Despite Washington s eventual release, an uproar ensued, leading to the battle at Monongahela River where the French and Indians ambushed Braddock s army. This book focuses on battle tactics, causes and consequences of these events. Bookseller Inventory # AAS9781841766836
