Benn explores this involvement by focusing on Iroquois diplomatic, military, and cultural history during the conflict. He looks at Iroquois attempts to stay out of the war, their entry into hostilities, their modes of warfare, the roles that they played in different campaigns, their relationships with their allies, and the effects of the war on their society. He also details the military and diplomatic strength of the Iroquois during the conflict, despite the serious tensions which plagued their communities.
This account reveals how the British benefited from the contributions of their Iroquois allies more than the Americans did and underscores how important the Six Nations were to the successful defence of Canada. It will appeal to general readers in Canada and the United States and will have relevance for students and scholars of military, colonial, and Native history.
