: Anyone know of some good non-fiction studies of the French and Indian Wars?
Funny you should mention it, Diana -- I just came
across a brand new book called "Crucible of War"
by Fred Anderson, which is a complete history of
the F & I War -- some 900 pages of it. I would
not suggest reading it whilst reclining, as it
would tend to crush your thorax, but it certainly
looks authoritative. In light of our many recent
discussions about stumpy little Mel's movie, there
is also a new book called "The Day The American
Revolution Began" by William H. Hallahan. It looks
good -- the jacket says it's filled with "surprising
new revelations about Lexington and Concord," i.e.,
that "the shot heard 'round the world" was not
fired accidentally, but deliberately in order to
foment the violence that sparked the war.
