BOOK REVIEW: Guns at the Forks: Fort Duquesne and Fort Pitt

by Walter O'Meara

This 1965 book covers the construction of the various forts that sprung up on the American frontier in the 1700s, including Fort Duquesne and Fort Pitt. Better yet, O'Meara provides a well-written account of events surrounding said forts, from frontier skirmishes to the French and Indian Wars as the British and French slugged it out with fickle Indian allies. Enjoyed it.
