Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0788418750, Paperback)When young Charles Nourse volunteered with his neighbors and friends and enlisted in the Amesbury, Massachusetts, militia in 1755 he could not have imagined the sights, terrors, and adventures he would encounter.
He learned what it meant to become a soldier, with endless days of marching, drills and fatigue duty. He saw the seedy side of camp life among soldiers from the different colonies. He witnessed for the first time the spectacle of a council of war between Sir William Johnson and his loyal Indian followers. He accompanied the famous Robert Rogers on several hair-raising scouting missions into French-held territory. And, during the bloody Battle of Lake George, he experienced the horror of combat, and the devastation it wrought on the men and their families.
Charles Nourse also found out how it felt to fall in love. He was learning the true meaning of War, Hell, and Honor.
