Overview

Pontiac’s War: Its Causes, Course, and Consequence, 1763-1765 is a compelling retelling of one of the most pivotal points in American colonial history, in which the Native peoples staged one of the most successful campaigns in three centuries of European contact. With his balanced analysis of the organization and execution of this important conflict, Middleton sheds light on the military movement that forced the British imperial forces to reinstate diplomacy to retain their authority over the region.

Spotlighting the Native American perspective, Pontiac’s War presents a careful, engaging account of how very close to success those Native American forces truly came.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"...a thoroughly documented tale that infuses remarkable diversity into a saga that historically has focused attention on a handful of key players. Middleton's discussion of Seneca diplomacy and subsequent peace negotiations with the Native peoples of the Illinois country... is especially insightful." "Highly recommended." -Choice
