Riassunto: This lively account of the southern frontier is the first to give a detailed critical analysis of the 1733-49 period during which Georgia served as a British military buffer colony between Spanish-dominated Florida and British-held South Carolina. Primarily a military history, British Drums on the Southern Frontier also emphasizes frontier politics and Indian diplomacy. Since James Oglethorpe, first as Georgia's civil leader and later as a British general, implemented--and frequently designed--Britain's imperial strategy on the southern frontier, his character and his political, diplomatic, and military activities are subjected to close scrutiny.
Descrizione del libro:
"The principal contributions of this monograph are twofold. First, by his emphasis upon Oglethorpe, the soldier, Ivers highlights a relatively unknown facet of this complex personality. Second, . . . [Ivers] achieve[s] a definitive picture, albeit on a small canvas, of the day-by-day lives of the participants--Mounted Rangers, Scouting Boat crews, Indian scouts, British regulars, Highlanders, and colonial militiamen. . . . The most striking characteristic of this volume is the exemplary use of clear, informative maps and diagrams. . . . [A]n attractive, useful, and entertaining work."-- The American Historical Review
