Raiders from New France teaser


Osprey have released an image from the forthcoming book by Rene Chartrand and Adam Hook.
The illustration depicts a clash between Abenaki warriors and Dragoons in 1707. As the Dragoon riders came up, other hidden warriors opened fire on them from the edge of the trees in what was obviously a deliberately planned ambush. During the five‑hour running fight that followed, the Albany militiamen never succeeded in catching up with the elusive warriors, who eventually vanished – taking some scalps with them, and seemingly suffering no casualties themselves.
