Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
In The Skulking Way Of War: Technology And Tactics Among The New England Indians, Patrick Malone (Senior Lecturer in the American Civilization department of Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island) surveys the weaponry and tactics among the Native Americans of New England and how they changed after the arrival of the European settlers and the introduction of gunpowder. Borrowing and modifying the flintlock musket for their own use, Native American fighters developed superior tactics and became a deadly force in forest warfare. During King Philip's War (1675-1677), Native American groups wrought intense destruction upon European (largely British) settler's colonies, forcing the whites to adopt the same mode of forest combat. These new tactics would re-emerge during the Revolutionary War against Britain and in subsequent American wars down to this very day, altering combat throughout the world. The Skulking Way Of War is very highly recommended reading for student of American history, military history, and Native American studies.

    A good and honest look at Indian style warfare during colonial expansion

    When first picking up this book I had an open mind about what I was about to read, but after dwelling into it for a couple of nights, I can see the author really has put in a lot of hard work and research and has cited many sources from that time period depicting the type of warfare that the Native Americans used. He addresses different topics from the use of firearms, close combat weapons, as well as common misconceptions and beliefs about Indian style warfare. All in all, if you're looking into the topic of Native American style warfare, the evolution of the techniques and style of fighting with firearms, or an American history buff in general, you'll defiantly get your monies worth with this book.

    Surprisingly Readable

    Wonderful analysis and history of aboriginal warfare and its evolution. Diagrams of weaponry included--matchlock and flintlock among the tomahawks as well. Well written, not your average dry history book.
