Pressestimmen"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." -- Roy A. Rauschenberg -- American Review of Canadian Studies, 19940101 "Nowhere has the new attitude towards the Indians been better illustrated than in Rob Allen's His Majesty's Indian Allies." -- David Curtis Skaggs -- Northwest Ohio Quarterly, 19930101 "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." -- Hereward Senior -- Monarchy Canada, 19930101 "A valuable book that intensively considers Canada's defense from the American War of Independence through the War of 1812." -- American Library Association, 1993 "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." -- Sidney Allinson -- Canadian Book Review Annual
