Publisher's Summary

The harrowing story of one of America's first and costliest wars - featuring a new foreword by best-selling author Nathaniel Philbrick

At once an in-depth history of this pivotal war and a guide to the historical sites where the ambushes, raids, and battles took place, King Philip's War expands our understanding of American history and provides insight into the nature of colonial and ethnic wars in general. Through a careful reconstruction of events, including first-person accounts, and by providing information on the exact locations of more than 50 battles, King Philip's War is useful as well as informative. Students of history, colonial war buffs, those interested in Native American history, and anyone who is curious about how this war affected a particular New England town, will find important insights into one of the most seminal events to shape the American mind and continent.

Indian Good; White Man Bad

I only made it through Part I. Seemed well-researched. Lots of detail but not engaging on a personal level. The author's point of view seemed bias. The message here boils down to "Indian good, white man bad".

Interesting Thorough Review

This book tells you EVERYTHING you might want to know about King Philips War. I feel like it could have been half the length, though, and I say that respectfully because it's obvious that the author loves the subject and has poured his heart into the book.

A version

The title of this book ought to be, “An Immigrant Perspective of King Phillip’s War,” or “A Partial Account of King Phillip’s War from the Caucasian Context and Viewpoint,” or “How Some of the Events Given the Umbrella Name ‘King Phillip’s War’ Affected Some of the People Who Colonized the Land Wampanoag Sachem Metacomet and His People, Their Ancestors, Had Lived upon for Millenia, and a Portion of Their Response to the White Colonial Warfare Inflicted to Render These Native People Non-existent via Violence, Propaganda, Subjugation, Denial of Reality, Distortion of Truth, and by Wielding 2-dimensional Documents as Unprecedented, Invincible, and Omnipotent Weapons to Debauch, Warp and Dictate 3-dimensional Life.”
Giving this biased account of a sliver of this integral time in history the title, “King Phillip’s War, The History and Legacy of America’s Forgotten Conflict,” was a bold choice, to say the least.
