Book Description

Aug. 20 2003 Men-at-Arms (Book 395)
The Five (later Six) Nations of the Iroquois Confederacy were central to the story of the white colonization of the American Northeast. The European fur trade transformed their world, and the struggles between English and French colonists forced the tribes to take sides during the Beaver Wars as well as the French and Indian Wars (1689-1763), which included King William's War, Queen Anne's War, King George's War, and finally ended with the French and Indian War of 1754. Sir William Johnson's efforts in the Mohawk Valley ensured that the Iroquois Nations were allies of the British crown; and the loyalty of his kinsman Joseph Brant (Thayendanegea) during the American Revolution forced the Mohawks into Canadian exile. This richly illustrated book introduces Iroquois history, social organization, religion and material culture.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Series Feb. 5 2013
By Jahana - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Just about any Osprey publication is going to be great. They used to have "cheesy" illustrations, but in the more recent volumes the quality has gone up. The illustrations are key since a lot so much of military history predates the photograph. But when cheesy artwork is used, it ruins the entire book. This one here on the Iroquois confederation has a nice mix of superior artwork and historic photographs. The text is written by experts, but if you want to go deeper you will have to visit a university library and find research monographs by super-specialists. As such, this volume is only an introduction; a general overview. But it a solid popular introduction to a political-military body that is central to US and world history. It is even claimed that the US Constitution bears influences of Iroquois Confederation self-governance, but this is not addressed in this volume.

1.0 out of 5 stars Just not worth it. June 1 2013
By Phil Hall - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If you are looking for a history of the Iroquois in the 1700's this isn't it. There is very little about the tribes in that period and it is more a history of the Iroquois in our time. What little history of the tribes in the 1700"s is very skimpy. The entire book is more of a lite history lite. Overall a big disappointment.
