Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Daniel P. Barr's Unconquered: The Iroquois League at War in Colonial America joins others in the Modern Military Tradition series, exploring the nature of Iroquois warfare and reviewing nearly two hundred years of conflict during colonial times in this country. The Iroquois conducted wars against the French, English, Americans and others: from economic consequences of rivalries to the foundations of war which dictated Iroquois League manners, Unconquered provides a scholarly review of history and cultural influences and is a 'must' for any surveying Native American culture and patterns of war."
