The French and Indian War - the conflict between the British and French in the New World has many enthusiastic students. It was shortly followed by the American War of Independence, but the British Army and its Provincial troops were engaged in the interim in conflicts with the indigenous Indian tribes of the Ohio river region as the colonial frontier pushed its way inexorably westwards into the continental heartland.
Colonel Bouquet, an able Swiss professional soldier engaged in British service was a key figure of this momentous struggle. He fought against Pontiac and other renowned warriors in a conflict without mercy which included the battle at Bushy Run with which he and his Highland Regiment troops will be forever associated. This edition includes two contrasting accounts of the man, his times and his campaigns.
