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


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


This two books sounds interesting! Thanks!

I recently read Francis Parkman's "Montcalm and Wolfe" and Fred Anderson's "Crucible of War". Both are great, but Parkman is subject to the prejudices of a century or so ago. Anderson is more modern. Probably our age has it's prejudices, too.

I am just concluding the third book of Hervey Allen's trilogy "The Disinherited".
The first book is "The Forest and the Fort", then "Fort Bedford" and finally "Toward the Morning".
The protagonist is a white boy raised by Indians following the murder of his parents, afterwards a frontiersman. The French and Indian War is much discussed although most of the action takes place during and after Pontiac's Rebellion, beginning with the siege of Ft Pitt.
Allen is a poet first and these novels reflect that. Have your dictionary and Google at the ready! They are as much a pleasure to read for the language and philosophy as they are for the very solid history. Allen is most well known for "Anthony Adverse" which as one of the most popular novels of the
1930s as well as a major motion picture. His WWI memoires as a young lieutenant, "Toward the Flame" is also reputed to be one of the best first person accounts of that conflict. Unfortunately he died before he could complete his entire frontier series of novels which were intended to be a trilogy of trilogies a la Star Wars. The trilogy is out of print but still available used on Amazon and in some libraries. Well worth it!!
