Synopsis: This is a vivid and provocative account of the surprising military defeat suffered by General Edward Braddock's army at the hands of French and Indian fighters at Fort Duquesne in 1755.

From the Back Cover: "A careful examination. . . . [Kopperman] has written, although he disclaims that distinction, the definitive narrative of the battle. . . . The book is a masterful demonstration of the techniques of critical analysis."-American Historical Review

"Kopperman has reconstructed the battle in vivid detail, using British, American and French sources. It is a fine study that will satisfy the military buffs; but for the student of history, the real meat lies in the appendices. Here Kopperman shows how the Braddock historiography has evolved. . . . A fascinating picture and a lesson in the writing of history."-Publishers Weekly

"[Kopperman] relies heavily on firsthand accounts, and his extensive research is evident. . . . This major contribution to the literature on the period is highly recommended."-Library Journal

"Although there have been several able studies of the incident, Kopperman's surpasses all others in thoroughness and critical acumen."- Choice
