The warfare of the French-Indian War was diverse, ranging from savage warfare in the forests and plains of the North American frontier to city sieges and open battles. The British Army struggled with the terrain and the tactics of the opposing American Indians. As the war progressed, the British Army learned from their allies, initiated reforms and eventually triumphed over the French and Canadians. The implications of this conflict reached across the world, contributing to the outbreak of the Seven Years' War in Europe and on the Indian subcontinent. This highly illustrated book charts the campaigns of the war, detailing the different troops raised and involved, the evolving tactics, the fortresses and battles. It contains material previously published in "Campaigns", pages 140, 121, 76, and 79; "Men-at-Arms", pages 23, 48, 228, 302, 304, and 395; "Warrior", pages 19, 42, 85, and, 88; "Essential Histories", page 44; "Fortress", page 27; and "Elite", page 93.
