The War That Made America

The War That Made America: A Short History of the French and Indian War

★★★★☆

Review:

A military history of the French & Indian War (1756–63), a conflict that, like it says on the tin, made America. This book (or its big brother, Crucible of War,) is indispensable context for an understanding of the Revolution and the older generation of founders.
