French and Indian War, 1754-1763 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
This is a very good book if one is interested in maps concerning the F&I War. There are more maps in this book than any other book about the F&I War I have seen until now. There is not a great deal of writing about the war however--the book may be read in an hour or two; but if one is interested in reproductions of original maps and fort layouts of that time, then this is a good book, and there are also many pictures (reproductions of paintings)of those involved in the war. For a concise history of the war, this is a good book. For those interested in a more indepth history, Wilderness Empire by Eckert, Montcalm and Wolfe by Parkman, or Crucible of War by Anderson would be better choices. This is a good book for those with little knowledge of the war (for its writing) or for those who enjoy studying maps of the time. A good book for students also, who are looking for a basic understanding of the war, its causes, and its results.
