The French and Indian War
A Complete Chronology
About the Book
The Seven Years War, known as the French and Indian War in the North American colonies, culminated the struggle lasting more than 200 years for domination in North America between two European empires, England and France. This major reference work, in addition to closely following all of the war campaigns (1754–1763) in the colonies and in Canada, also documents the conflict in Europe and other regions of the world, including the battles on the high seas in the West Indies, Europe, India, and Africa. Organized chronologically, the book first covers the near-constant French successes and British setbacks during the first four years of the conflict, then provides equal coverage for the duration as the English reverse their failures and plunge ahead toward victory in North America.
