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.
