"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."
American Review of Canadian Studies
"Nowhere has the new attitude towards the Indians been better illustrated than in Rob Allen's His Majesty's Indian Allies."
Northwest Ohio Quarterly
"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."
"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."
