Reviews - What do customers think about Gateway to Empire (Eckert, Allan W. Winning of America Series.)?

Chicago gets wiped out.  Nov 7, 2007
This book lets you in on the dealings of Tecumseh with more details. The records of the decisions of the military commanding officers are astounding. As I was reading the events I wanted to kick somebody for getting so many people killed.
Great series  Jul 27, 2007
This book isn't as strong as some of Eckert's others, but as a part of his series, (and for a book that was previously out of print) I'd strongly recommend it.

I had read Frontiersmen, Tecumseh and Dark and Bloody River, and preferred them easily to this book, but still enjoyed it, and have re-read it many times.
