Riassunto: Even as the 250th anniversary of its outbreak approaches, the Seven Years' War (otherwise known as the French and Indian War) is still not wholly understood. Most accounts tell the story as a military struggle between British and French forces, with shifting alliances of Indians, culminating in the British conquest of Canada. Scholarly and popular works alike, including James Fennimore Cooper's Last of the Mohicans, focus on the action in the Hudson River Valley and the St. Lawrence Seaway. Matthew C. Ward tells the compelling story of the war from the point of view of the region where it actually began, and whose people felt the devastating effects of war most keenly-the backcountry communities of Virginia and Pennsylvania.  

Previous wars in North America had been fought largely on the New England and New York frontiers. But on May 28, 1754, when a young George Washington commanded the first shot fired in western Pennsylvania, fighting spread for the first time to Virginia and Pennsylvania. Ward's original research reveals that on the eve of the Seven Years' War the communities of these colonies were isolated, economically weak, and culturally diverse. He shows in riveting detail how, despite the British empire's triumph, the war brought social chaos, sickness, hunger, punishment, and violence, to the backcountry, much of it at the hands of Indian warriors.

Ward's fresh analysis reveals that Indian raids were not random skirmishes, but part of an organized strategy that included psychological warfare designed to make settlers flee Indian territories. It was the awesome effectiveness of this guerilla” warfare, Ward argues, that led to the most enduring legacies of the war: Indian-hating and an armed population of colonial settlers, distrustful of the British empire that couldn't protect them. Understanding the horrors of the Seven Years' War as experienced in the backwoods thus provides unique insights into the origins of the American republic.

About the Author: Matthew C. Ward is a lecturer in the department of history at the University of Dundee, Scotland.

Descrizione libro University of Pittsburgh Press, United States, 2004. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. This year marks the two hundred and fiftieth anniversary of the start of the Seven Years War. While other histories have focused on the large military campaigns along the Hudson and St. Lawrence Valleys, Matthew Ward describes the impetus, progress, and devastating effects of the war as it played out in the region where it began. He combines Indian history, social history, and military history to present a complete picture of the competing interests and struggles facing the people engaged in the conflict. Ward illuminates how the backcountry colonies not only played a critical part in the war itself, but also opened the door to some of the definitive elements of the next few decades - western expansion, widespread fear and hatred of Indians, free colonial trading, a new spirit of self-reliance, and, most crucially, the Revolutionary War and the evolution of a new nation. Using original research from archives in the United States and Britain, Ward delivers a fresh analysis as well as an engaging explication of events. He describes how Indian raids were structured to achieve a successful military strategy, and analyzes the remarkable ineffectiveness of colonial and imperial defenses. As France and England grappled for supremacy throughout the world, these superpowers were showing signs of the mismanagement and deterioration that, as Ward demonstrates, would lead to major upheavals in Europe over the next several decades. Breaking the Backcountry captures the emotional tenor and social experience of the times. This deeply moving account will appear to readers interested in the history of colonial America in general, or the Pennsylvania and Virginia region specifically.
