Before the colonies united, the French and the British were continually at odds, and the colonies were caught in the middle. The “French and Indian Wars” were five smaller periods of strife in the Northern colonies and Southern Canada. (1) 1688-1698. (2) 1703-1713. (3) 1722-1725. (4) 1744-1749. (5) 1754 – c.1765. This ‘Particular History’ covers the 4th period. The author calls it ‘Particular’ because IT DEALS IN DETAILS, not just in broad generalities. Those seeking detailed analysis of this portion of the French and Indian Wars will find this book a treasure trove.
