This is an interesting little book. It is about the nature of Indian warfare, and how it changed after the Indians obtained firearms. It's also about culture and how the conquerors and the conquered alter one another. This is shown by the adaptation the colonists made to the way they waged war during the extremely bloody, but little known King Philip's War. Very thoughtful and thought provoking.

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.

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.
