Well written & researched but not totally engrossing. There was a little too much emphasis on the battles -style was somewhat reminiscent of Bernard Cornwell. By that I mean a nice mix of personal and tactical detail but there was a little too much emphasis on torture & gore for my tastes.

A few spots showed a lack of editing (for example the same information presented different ways within the same section as if trying out different approaches but both got left in).

A decent F&I story that gives you lots of information about actual events from both colonists' and Indian pov. The ending made it obvious that the story is to be continued...
