    1. While you get an afwul lot of Osprey artwork for your buck, this compendium falls short as an overview of the Seven Years' War in North America - which ended 3 years prior to the global conflict. The abbreviated Men-at-Arms and Campaign titles intersect each other. So, after the first clashes in the Ohio wilderness and the massacre at Fort william Henry, we pause to look at the tactics of French and British regulars, as opposed to the "forest guerilla" art of war practiced by the Native American [...]

    2. Read while on jury duty for state of NJ in 2006 when there was a state shut down due to financial issues. I scribbled note after note in the margins of this book and must have highlighted 80% of it.In my way of reading there is no higher form of praise! Excellent

    3. Covers the French Indian War which was the North American scene of the global Seven Years war. Concise and excellent

    4. Everything you would expect from a book published by Osprey. Well illustrated, detail oriented and easy to ready. This is a compilation of many of their other works on the French & Indian war so there is some duplication from other Osprey titles on the subject. If you are interested in this period and enjoy the Osprey series, this book will make a fine addition to your library. Recommend.
