In the New World in the 1750s, British forces and American colonial militias wage battles against French troops and Indian tribes

Blackwell North Amer
In his new novel of the French and Indian War, this master storyteller takes us back to a time when America's vast riches were up for grabs, and British forces, led by General Edward Braddock, joined by the American colonial militias, and the French aided by their Indian allies, were locked in battle over the great territories of the Ohio valley.
From 1754 through 1759, the fighting was almost constant, and sometimes hopeless, as both sides, exhausted from war, nearly conceded defeat. In the end, only one side could prevail.
In Savage Wilderness Coyle draws on his own long and distinguished Army service as an armor officer, his detailed research, and a command of combat that is without peer, to create this portrayal of the grim reality of life and death on the battlefield.
