"Cohen describes how five peoples -- the British, French, Americans, Canadians, and Indians -- fought over the key to the North American continent: the corridor running from Albany to Montreal dominated by the Champlain Valley and known to Native Americans as the "Great Warpath". He reveals how conflict along these two hundred miles of lake, river, and woodland shaped ... [America's] military values, practices, and institutions."--Dust jacket.
