The War That Made America

The War That Made America: A Short History of the French and Indian War by Fred Anderson is the companion piece to the PBS series of a few years back. It is an interesting and timely read that looks at things from different perspectives -- British, French, colonials, and Native Americans. Unexpected consequences is a repeated theme.
