Steven Eames demonstrates that [the battlefield style that] developed in early New England was ... a unique way of war that selectively blended elements of European military strategy, frontier fighting, and native American warfare.

Drawing upon a wealth of primary materials on King William's War, Queen Anne's War, Dummer's War, and King George's War, Eames offers a bottom-up view of how war was conducted and how war was experienced in this particular period and place"--Page 4 of cover."@en ;
