I have to admit that this came out as a book I will probably not read again. The premise is interesting, the setting is wonderful, the execution is tepid. I think that part of the problem lies in the fact that the book pretty accurately describes the warfare of the period – Indian raids, guerilla style warfare, not a lot of larger scale battles. I originally picked this up to give me a few ideas for my Old School Wargaming campaign and I have picked up a few items I can use. Small artillery pieces, coehorn mortars, earthworks, possibly even some of the French irregulars or Roger’s Rangers will now play a part in the campaign I have been working on elsewhere.I notice that on Amazon, the book is listed used for $0.07 – yeah, that’s no typo. I would pay more than that if I had to read the book… in paperback… but wouldn’t keep it on my shelf afterwards. Get it from the library like I did.
