During the French and Indian War, these two units were some of the finest raised by Canada and the 13 colonies. The blue-coated Virginia Provincials were well-equipped and effective troops under the leadership of many daring leaders, including a young George Washington. Their foes are the Compagnies Franches de la Marine (Independent Companies of the Marine), a versatile French-Canadian force who had proved their prowess in swift raids for over 80 years. This book includes 48 soldiers: 24 Virginia Provincials and 24 Compagnies Franches de la Marine. Each side includes two officers, one flagbearer, one drummer, and 20 privates. Bases are marked with national flags, so there is no confusion between sides in the heat of battle!
