Phew Interesting to say the least I have had an increasing fascination with the French and Indian Wars Jennings refuses to call it that and with some good reasons over the years as I slowly recognized its crucial importance as perhaps the main causative factor for the American Revolution Not a ground breaking realization for historians maybe but for the average person so Anyway I read the reviled in this book Francis Parkman s Montcalm and Wolfe just a few years back and gave it 5 stars on and Fred Anderson s superb Crucible of War fairly recently easily 5 star Jennings work is cited by Anderson in several places and it is clear that he has done some amazing work here Apparently this is the 3rd in a series on the clash of civilizations that occurred when white people landed in North America There is so much excellent material here I liked the chronologies at the start of each chapter and the sub chapter heading made the complex events digestible This is however very much a new look at old facts and Jennings is not reluctant to attempt to rewrite the police report of history as another reviewer cleverly put it Yet it is rare perhaps unprecedented in my reading of history books which is significant but hardly exhaustive to find a professional historian calling a previous writer a liar Not that so and so got it wrong or misinterpreted events but a flat out liar So it is with Jennings and his analysis of especially of Parkman but also Henry Lawrence Gipson and others In fact he cites scholarly articles on the subject of Parkman s lack of veracity Perhaps it so Parkman wrote in the late 1800s a different era but his writing style was highly appealing to me As to the uality of his research I have no real idea He is known to have done a lot of research and many others are not as dismissive I do know that Jennings presents a very different viewpoint of the events and especially the main players of the period Montcalm and Wolfe as the heroes of Parkman are excoriated repeatedly Both are incompetent and basically evil in the mind of Jennings Many others of lesser and even greater rank Cumberland Amherst Loudon George Washington even Benjamin Franklin the latter labeled an imperialist incessantly are taken to the woodshed as well Perhaps it is all true the book is deeply researched and footnoted on almost every page something I greatly prefer to having them at the back He writes with great passion and conviction especially when he can demonstrate racist or malign intent Except of course the Indians yes they committed some atrocities but nearly always that is the fault of their evil overlords Jennings would no doubt be very popular in any University faculty today He does present a great deal on the Indians and the incredible complexity of their politicalmilitary interactions among themselves and with the two main contenders actually because the individual colonies often had separate agendas Overall Jennings provided a needed counterweight to some existing versions of this pivotal period but at times it is done with excess rancor It was all a lot complicated than maybe we were told once upon a time but then again everything is once you delve into it

Although adeuate on military matters Jennings poorly organized and rather argumentative book is about politics and the wars European context Much of it is devoted to his criticisms of other books on the subject which is mostly interesting but at times feels overdone and ill founded and is written in an oddly cranky tone The book doesn t offer much new on the period and for some reason he treats the Irouois as a single entity despite the disputes between the Mohawk and the other tribes something Jennings even acknowledgesStill Jennings criticism of other historians becomes excessive and at times even humorous Parkman is dubbed stupidly vicious and a liar and he slams others for writing slanted trash Parkman is called a liar He fabricated documents misuoted others relied almost entirely on a small set of nastily biased secondary works and did it all to support an ideology of divisiveness and hate based on racism bigotry misogyny authoritarianism chauvinism and upper class arrogance The narrative itself is rather enjoyable but again there are problems Jennings blames Braddock s arrogance and disastrous candor with the Delaware chiefs for alienating the Indians However Braddock had been advised by Pownall to frame his expedition as an effort to protect Indian land rights and Braddock authorized diplomatic messages that said this The king explicitly ordered Braddock to cultivate good relations with the Indian chiefs Warfare between the Irouois and the Cherokee rivalry between Christopher Gist and Richard Pearis and the lukewarm attitude of Governor Glen all played a role Still Jennings insists that the disaster was Braddock s fault from the beginning to the endthere is absolutely no valid reason to condone this stupid brute of a man whose prime ualification for command was the the political favor of the party of royal prerogative Jennings also writes that the British government only desired a standing army in North America for the sole purpose of enforcing royal power Of course there was also Indian problems in Canada the West and Florida and pacifying and securing these frontiers would reuire troops The Board of Trade also felt that a British army could keep the peace between colonists and Indians And of course in the next few years the army would be used to collect customs duties and control American society But these beliefs in 1763 did not exist in clear articulated form He also writes that the idea that the American Revolution was the product of misunderstanding on both sides dead wrong without much elaboration He writes that the sole reason for British victory was the ascent of Pitt And he uses a little too much slangAn interesting work and recommended for the enthusiast but not without its problems
