The book is probably very good ,but the reviewer is full of BS, he immediately starts drawing the cloak of concealment over the American Indian,his role in the massacre, and his role as a bloodthirsty nightmare in the conflicts of the time, ands times soon to follow. No white commander whether British, French, Spanish, or American could control them even when under their command, although
Rogers Rangers did finally break the back of the powerful Iroquois.

I own and have read The Crucible of War. It's OK but is rather politically correct, especially in the author's descriptions of native american leaders.
