From the cover: “Award-winning historian John Keegan has visited battlefields throughout the world, but finds himself constantly returning to North America. The continent has come to exert a deep fascination upon him — its mixture of peoples, its history, its politics, its civilisation and its varied geography and military history have come to explain each other in North America as they do nowhere else in the world. From the arrival of the Europeans m the sixteenth century to the final defeat of the native Americans in the nineteenth, climate and competition for the resources of nature explain why men fortified where they did, campaigned as they did and were battlefields where the control drawn to the battlefields where the control of the continent was decided.”
