Richard Spilman, on his nautical book blog, features a glowing review of Defying Empire, Trading with the Enemy in Old New York, by Thomas Truxes.

He says, "The book describes the widespread trading with the French by New York merchants during the French and Indian Wars, as the conflict was known in the colonies.
