I picked up this large book on a subject of little personal interest at the time thining to read one chapter just for a change of pace.
I would recommend this book not just to those interested in the American colonies or military history but to anyone who appreciates a well written book.
Fred Anderson has written a very thorough account of the Seven Years' War which is also known in North America as the French and Indian War.
This is an excellent book. It covers the true First World War and English as well as the colonists' politics during the French and Indian War. I highly recommend this book.Published 1 month ago by Tatertot
