Paperback, 112 pgs. This is a fast moving, illustrated account of the French and Indian War; the war that determined what civilization, what governmental institutions, what social and economic patterns would be paramount in North America. Written from English speaking sources and the British point of view, it is surprisingly fair in representing the French as poorly supplied and supported by their government, greatly outnumbered, yet masters of woodland fighting. The author explains the roles played by the French, the British, the Indian allies on both sides, and by the Colonials with warranted emphasis on Robert Rogers and his Rangers. A year-by-year, campaign by campaign accounting puts the events in perspective. The author's research into the role of Roger's Rangers is amply represented and his personal collection of site photos and paintings is a valuable addition. Recommended to anyone who seeks to know and interpret this important phase of our history.
