British and Provincial Officers of the French and Indian War

Who were the men who led British and Provincial troops to victory in the French and Indian War?

Military historian George Bray takes a look at this topic as he explores leadership of the British and provincial forces between 1754 and 1760.. 


George Bray is a military historian and reenactor who is also retired from the U. S. Army where he served for over 21 years as an Intelligence Analyst and Counterintelligence Agent.  He has always been interested in history, beginning serious study of the French and Indian War prior to the American Revolution Bicentennial. For the past 42 years, he has been the event commander at the annual French and Indian War encampment at Fort Niagara.  He is also one of the members of the New York State French and Indian War 250th Anniversary Commemorative Commission which was responsible for the sponsorship of several events between 2005 and 2010. His publications include articles in Military Collector and Historian (journal of the Company of Military Historians), Muzzleloader (a publication for black powder shooters), and the Journal of the Forces of Montcalm and Wolfe (a publication for French and Indian War reenactors).  He  has also assisted in and been featured in several television documentaries for such producers as the Learning Channel and BBC.

He is a Fellow of the Company of Military Historians and a member of the Old Fort Niagara Association.  An avid collector, George’s collection includes original prints, books, documents, weapons and other items of the period. 

Having presented countless lectures over the years to historic sites, historic societies, schools, and other organizations, he enjoys sharing the history of the French and Indian War to enhance the awareness of this important conflict in our nation's history to others.
