Description

This is the first comprehensive one-volume overview of the diplomatic, military and maritime history of the causes and conduct of the Seven Years’ War and its American manifestation, the French and Indian War (1753-63).

The Seven Years’ War was the first global conflict in history and a precursor to the American War of Independence. The authors summarize both older and more recent scholarship on these subjects, and synthesize them in a complete annotated bibliography. The book also includes biographical sketches and critical reappraisals of some of the major figures of the period

The Seven Years War will be of great interest to students of the Seven Years War, American history, diplomatic and military history.
