William Fowler's Empires at War is original, and praiseworthy, because he troubles to set the North American conflict in the European context. On May 28, 1754, a group of militia and Indians led by twenty-two-year-old major George Washington surprised a camp of sleeping French soldiers near present-day Pittsburgh. Washington could not have known it, but the brief and deadly exchange of fire that ensued lit the match that, in Horace Walpole's memorable phrase, would "set the world on fire.

The warfare of the French and Indian War was diverse, ranging from savage fighting in the forests and plains of the North American frontier to city sieges and open battles, as the British Army struggled with the terrain and the tactics of the opposing French and Native Americans. This book examines the progression of the war, as the British Army learned from their allies, initiated reforms, and eventually triumphed over the French and Canadians. The implications of this conflict reached across the world, contributing to the outbreak of the Seven Years' War in Europe and discontent on the Indian subcontinent. This highly illustrated book charts the campaigns of the war, detailing the different troops raised and involved, the evolving tactics, the fortresses, and, battles. With intricate full-color artwork and an insightful foreword by renowned historian William M. Fowler, Jr., Empires Collide serves as a detailed battle-by-battle guide to a bloody war born out of aggressive British imperialism,charting the campaigns of the war, detailing the different troops raised and involved, the evolving tactics, the fortresses, and, battles.

Was quite disappointed to find that, unlike some other Osprey combined titles - like "Soldiers of the Revolutionary War" or "The German Army in World War II" - THIS BOOK DOES NOT INCLUDE THE ORIGINAL COLOR PLATES OF ORIGINAL SIZE. All are reduced in size, some are b/w, and most are simply missing. In my opinion Osprey color uniform-related plates and accompanying text make the advantage of these series (MAA, Elite etc), on the other hand I doubt that any of their title may serve as a historical reference to any serious reader (perhaps teenager) due to the material oversimplification. So, if you are looking for color plates - better save your money

This book, I would say is wonderful for the person who is just getting into French and Indian War history. While the book does not go into huge debth it still provides all of the important basics. The illustrations are wonderfully done. Solid explanation of the diffirent kinds of units and groups which faught in the war are given, along with wonderful drawings. So again, I would say that if you are new to this area of historical study, pick the book up. If you have already studied this time buy it anyway, its a great read.

Great military history of the F&I War, with awesome color repoductions of portraits, maps, etc. Chapters on Rangers and French forces well-done.

VERY COLORFUL PICTURES BUT I FOUND THE BOOK BORING.THE PAGE 8 REFERENCE TO BRADDOCKS VICTORY IS CONFUSING.HE WAS KILLED IN HIS ONLY BATTLE IN THE WAR.
