Redcoat & Warpaint: A Military History of Pontiac's War, 1760-1765

  by Francis Parkman $21.95  

Redcoat and Warpaint bookFollowing the defeat of France at the culmination of the Seven Years War, the colonists, their militia and British regiments serving in America had yet to contend with hostile Indian tribes for whom neither old enmities nor traditional allegiances could be nullified by the signing of a peace treaty in Europe.

This was another brutal period of sieges, burning stockades, massacres and fierce skirmishes and battles. Detroit underwent a protracted siege, the battles of Bloody and Bushy Run entered legend and notable characters of the French and Indian War, such as Robert Rogers of the Rangers, once more were in action.

This book, based on Parkman's exhaustive 700+ page The Conspiracy of Pontiac title, now 'cuts to the chase' of the military events of this notable period of American colonial history. Useful and interesting first hand accounts which had been relegated to footnotes in the original edition have been integrated into the main body of the text to create a more focused book without sacrificing any of Parkman's essential research and undisputed skill as an historian.

Hardback, 2012, 6" x 9", 384 pages, (no index) $21.95
