Does anyone have any other book suggestions on this overlooked period of early American history?

This is my one and only book on the French And Indian War and it's fantastic.
"Crucible of War" is the book on the Seven Years' War in North America. If you only read one book on the war, it should be Anderson's. Now, here are a few more:

Redcoats: The British Soldier and War in the Americas, 1755-1763 by Stephen Brumwell.


White Devil: A True Story Of War, Savagery, And Vengeance In Colonial America by Stephen Brumwell.


Paths Of Glory: The Life And Death Of General James Wolfe by Stephen Brumwell.


Breaking The Backcountry: The Seven Years' War In Virginia And Pennsylvania 1754-1765 by Matthew C. Ward.


Betrayals: Fort William Henry and the Massacre by Ian K. Steele.

Wolfe at Quebec: The Man Who Won the French and Indian War
by Christopher Hibbert.


Montcalm and Wolfe
by Francis Parkman.

The Annotated and Illustrated Journals of Major Robert Rogers edited by Timothy J. Todish.

Sons of the Mountains: The Highland Regiments in the French and Indian War, 1756-1767 Vols. 1 & 2 by Ian McPherson McCulloch.


Drums In The Forest: Decision At The Forks, Defense In The Wilderness by Alfred Proctor James, Charles Morse Stotz.


Siege 1759 : The Campaign Against Niagara
by Brian L. Dunnigan.
