Two Books for those winter nights...

Here are a couple of books that I've recently finished, both dealing with The French and Indian War:

1. MONONGAHELA 1754 - 55. Subtitled Washington's defeat, Braddock's disaster by Rene Chartrand with illustrations by Stephen Walsh. An ok read... about this period of the war from a Canadian author's view of history. Nicely illustrated with color pictures of sites, re-inactors, maps, etc. A nice reference for one's library.

2. WHITE DEVIL A True Story of War, Savagery and Vengence in Colonial America by Stephen Brumwell. About Major Robert Rogers and his campaign against the Abenake tribe in 1759. Starts out pretty good, with some early history of Rogers and the early part of the war, but by the book's end, it got a bit tedious. Still, it seems nicely researched with ample bookmarked explanations and elaborations and with a nice bibliography.
