    I have read this book several times over a decade, I still find

    I have read this book several times over a decade, I still find myself learning more each time. While delving into the detail of military operations, Fred Anderson is able to entertain you with engaging and insightful narratives. I highly recommend this book.

    New Book Good-But Not Equal to Parkman

    This book is quite a good, solid effort at dealing with this large and important historical drama--it essentially lays out the story effectively. However, it is certainly no match for the high scholarship, and minute detail of Francis Parkman's illustrious volumes written so many yrs. ago. Parkman was not just a great historian-and scholar--Phi Beta Kappa--Harvard-- a graduate of the Harvard Law School as well--a training I dare say which prepared him well for his massive history producing effort--some 50 yrs. in the making--visting most of the locations mentioned-- and,including the 'original French' translations w/in his work--tremendous maps, and drawings. It is an excellently written drama and it will never be equalled. Nevertheless, in spite of this, Mr. Anderson has managed to 're-produce' a good and entertaining single vol. work worth reading.

    simply can not put it down

    Few narratives hold your attention and are as easy to follow as Crucible. Exhaustive research, not exhausting information. Well done Fred!

    Hooray for Fred Anderson!

    Dr. Anderson has produced the best written and most ably researched book on this interesting period of our history. If you ask 'Who cares about the Seven Years'War?' you definitely need to read this volume. The average reader,once he has begun this 800+ page book will be disappointed it wasn't longer. The scholar will wish he had Fred Anderson's talent for story telling, because this excellent history reads like a novel. Keep them coming, Professor Anderson.
