Conquered Into Liberty : Two Centuries of Battles Along the Great Warpath That Made the American Way of War
by Eliot A. Cohen


Overview - "A brilliant history of our least-known wars on our most-ignored frontier--our northern border with Canada" ( Los Angeles Times ).
R edirecting our attention from the Civil War to the real conflict that consolidated the United States, Cohen describes how five groups-- the British, French, Americans, Canadians, and Indians--fought over the key to the North American continent: the corridor running from Albany to Montreal, known to Native Americans as the "Great Warpath." He explores how a distinctly American approach to war developed along these 200 miles, reintroducing characters we thought we knew--an admirable Benedict Arnold, a traitorous Ethan Allen, and a devious George Washington.
