King Philip's War

King Philip's War

25.95

Sometimes described as “America’s deadliest war“, King Philip’s War proved a critical turning point in the history of New England, leaving English colonists decisively in command of the region at the expense of native peoples. Although traditionally understood as an inevitable clash of cultures or as a classic example of Indian-white frontier conflict, in the view of James D. Drake it was neither. Instead, he argues, King Philip’s War was a civil war, whose divisions cut across simple ethnic lines and tore apart a society composed of English colonizers and Native Americans alike.
