Book question

Here's a quick question for you all. I've been reading Wargames Illustrated recently and realised that there are so many periods of history I know nothing about. Watching the Bloggers for Charity project progress, I felt it was about time I actually knew something about the period, but the Osprey book is currently out of print and they havn't released it as a digital version yet. Can anyone recommend a good book on the French-Indian war please?

  3. The book Edwin is offering on the blog is a good read and will give you more than enough information to get you going.

  5. Another place to look is books.google.com. There are great books there that are absolutely free. They are all older books but that is not necessarily a bad thing.
