Osprey's Empires Collide: The French and Indian War - , reviewed by Scott Van Aken
An excellent overall conflict book is "Empires Collide - The French and Indian War " is an easy read and breaks the phases of the conflict down well. All about Indians. Lots of pictures, body paint, scalps and background in all four of these books. If I was to pick one from a wargamer perspective I would start with American Woodland Indians since it gives a good general account of the various tribes involved.
Rangers and American Colonial Troops.
