Editorial Reviews

"Nowhere has the new attitude towards the Indians been better illustrated than in Rob Allen's His Majesty's Indian Allies."

— Northwest Ohio Quarterly

"Allen's study offers interesting new historical insights into why Canada's Native peoples consider themselves still to be more than mere pawns in Ottawa's sovereignty-association games."

— Canadian Book Review Annual

“Robert S. Allen's His Majesty's Indian Allies is a readable, thought-provoking, worthwhile summary of British-Indian relations, which effectively complements the existing literature on the British and the Great Lakes Indians."

— American Review of Canadian Studies

"His Majesty's Indian Allies is a work of sound and extensive scholarship which can be read with interest by those schooled in James Fenimore Cooper or otherwise fascinated by the romance of Indian lore."

— Monarchy Canada

"A valuable book that intensively considers Canada's defense from the American War of Independence through the War of 1812."

— American Library Association, 1993
