    Liberty or Death Wars That Forged a Nation SC (2006 Osprey Essential Histories) 1-1ST

    1st printing. Written by Carl Benn and Daniel Marston. Foreword by Fred Anderson. At the beginning of the 18th century, America was a colonized land with European countries squabbling over its many natural resources. In 1754, the French-Indian War broke out as a decisive battle between the French and British for control of North America. Britain's victory led to greater governmental involvement in the American colonies that developed into rebellion in 1775. Following the American Revolution, the USA and Britain shared an uneasy peace that erupted in war again in 1812; the ensuing conflict tore through the American frontier. This book examines the wars in North America from the French-Indian War until the end of the War of 1812, which brought lasting peace between Britain and the United States. Softcover, 288 pages, Text (with B&W Photos). Cover price $24.95.
