Meet the Author

Long regarded as the most famous of America's nineteenth-century historians, Francis Parkman was born in Massachusetts in 1823, into the affluent and comfortable world of the Boston Brahmins. His work is very much a history of "Great Men," a sweeping and glorious narrative of the motives and actions of kings, queens, and princes; politicians, courtesans and generals; heroes and villains, all used as symbols to represent the values and qualities of their respective nations and societies. He died in November 1893 and was elected to the Hall of Fame for Great Americans in 1915.

Mr. Parkman has provided a very comprehensive and easily read book on the French and Indian War with this work. Although this was really a World War, the book concentrates on the battles and campaigns in North America. I had troubles reading one of Parkman¿s other books, but this one was hard for me to put down. It is an excellent resource for any one interested in the Colonial period of the American colonies.
