In this riveting novel of the French and Indian War, master storyteller Harold Coyle takes us back to a time when America’s vast riches were up for grabs. From 1754 through 1759, British and American colonial forces were locked in constant battle with the French and their Indian allies over the great territories of the Ohio Valley. For British army captain Thomas Shields, the war is an opportunity for fame, but the untamed wilderness he finds himself in defies all his expectations of the battlefield. For Scottish rebel Ian McPherson, serving in the English army is a punishment, but America offers the chance to secure some land of his own. And for idealistic young French officer Anton de Chevalier, the savage battle tactics of his Indian allies will forever change his understanding of war. Coyle draws on extensive research and his own military experience to create this stunning portrayal of life and death on the battlefield.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Harold Coyle is the best natural storyteller I know.” Tom Clancy
“Nobody knows war like Harold Coyle, and nobody writes it better.” Stephen Coonts, New York Times bestselling author
“Consistently engrossing…Vivid accounts of bloody engagements on New World battlefields where the fate of great empires was decided, and resonant depictions of the men at the sharp end of the bayonet—or tomahawk—make for a splendid period piece.” Kirkus Reviews
“A vigorous, sweeping saga of frontier warfare…Coyle’s message is as clear as his storytelling is strong: great empires are won or lost by the blood, determination and ingenuity of a few individuals, grappling on the dark fringes of civilization.”  Publishers Weekly
“[Cosham] is as fine a guide as one could ask…This is a fine conjunction of narrative and narrator.” AudioFile
