Sintesi dell'editore

The French and Indian War: 1660-1763 covers much more than the few years during which the English and French fought over the division of the North American continent in one of the most neglected periods of American history. In this volume in the Drama of American History series, authors Christopher Collier and James Lincoln Collier trace how England’s other rivals for control of America were eliminated over this period until the only source of conflict left would be between the British and their own colonists. This volume offers a fairly unique approach to American history by focusing on core content rather than a blizzard of names and dates, giving listeners a good sense of not only what happened, but why, as England eliminated its competition.

History is dramatic - and the renowned, award-winning authors Christopher Collier and James Lincoln Collier demonstrate this in a compelling series aimed at young readers. Covering American history from the founding of Jamestown through present day, these volumes explore far beyond the dates and events of a historical chronicle to present a moving illumination of the ideas, opinions, attitudes and tribulations that led to the birth of this great nation.

Great overview of a less-known series of conflicts

This is the first in this history series I have listened to, but I'm impressed. My husband and I listened to this in the car with our 16 year old. We all really liked it and learned a lot. I believe it is aimed at high schoolers, but the adults enjoyed it just as well. It held all of our interest, and we all thought it was a good level of detail.

The subject is very interesting -- it can be argued that without these war(s), George Washington wouldn't have come to prominence, or the American colonies thought of seeking their independence from Britain.

The narrator was quite good and held our interest without stealing the show.

Decolonize US history

Biased and ignoring the Native vision of the invasion
Very disappointing to the very least

An Excellent Overview of the Time Period

A very informative presentation of the period from 1660 to 1763. After listening, I have a much better understanding of the domestic and foreign forces that led to our eventual independence from England. I look forward to listening to other books in this series.

good

I always wish women showed up in history, but, failing that, this book was a good review.

It is good to hear about history in a short concise way, rather than just a long recitation of names and dates

Great overview of American History

I appreciate how this series reads topically. This format makes understanding History very easy as they read like novels.

European power politics that shaped the USA

the most memorable takeaway was the remark toward the end of the book that without the English domination of the North American continent the American colonies never would have dared secede from the British empire

Terrific & Insightful

I liked this rather well. My favorite part was how it showed the butterfly effect with things. Very nice. George Washington was essentially like Bruce Willis in the Die Hard movies.
