Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
BeschreibungDuring the American Revolution the British enjoyed an alliance with their Native allies in the Great Lakes region of North America. By the War of 1812, however, that "chain of friendship" had devolved into smaller, more local alliances. This book attempts to understand how and why this shift occurred.
