Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This classic account of King Philip's War, first published in 1958, offers a bird's-eye view of the conflict, from the Wampanoag sachem's rise to his ultimate defeat. The battles, massacres, stratagems, and logistics of this war are all detailed, with the leaders of both sides figuring prominently in this tale of bloodshed, privation, and woe. The author weighs all the factors contributing to the Native Americans' defeat and surveys the effects of the war on the lives of both Indians and colonists in the years to come. With insight, balance, and compassion, Leach portrays the tragedy of the war and points toward the future of the nascent American republic.

Synopsis:

'First book to chart the social, political, and military history behind King Philip\'s War. This classic study from historian Douglas Leach stands the test of time.\n

'

Synopsis:

"Marked by scrupulous and wide-ranging research, it is not only good history but good narrative as well." --Robert J. Taylor, American Historical Review
