    Toot, I can also recommend "King Philip's War," by Daniel Mandell, and "The Skulking Way of War," by Patrick Malone, which focuses on the technology and tactics of the New England Indians. My Wood ancestors were in on this fight across the border in Plimoth Colony, at what became Middleboro.
    WKD: Wonderful work with the dog-lock club butt!

    Another great book on King Philip's War is The Name of War, by Jill LePore. It puts the war in a wider perspective of the New England colonists interacting with the local tribes before the war and after, and how the war changed the way the colonists regarded themselves. Her idea is that King Philip's War is the conflict that made the colonies start to regard themselves as a group. It was the precursor to the revolution and the idea of the United States. It's a mostly forgotten war that changed the colonies dramatically.

    It killed off about a quarter of the European population in New England and pushed the colonists back toward the coast. It was touch and go for a couple of years.
