The French-Indian War was fought in the forests,
open plains, and forts of the North American frontier.
The French army, supported by North American tribes,
was initially more successful than the British Army,
who suffered from lack of experience at woodland fighting.
This title explains the background to the wars and charts
the military development of the British Army and the
reforms that contributed to its eventual superiority.
In both skirmishes in the forests of the frontier and
great battles such as Louisbourg and Quebec, the British
proved they had learnt well from their Indian allies.
