Is there a good, wargamer friendly, book that covers sort of the Carribean,India and Florida-Spanish actions of the AWI period?

There is Don Glickstein's After Yorktown which covers the the areas you mention and a lot more (the Arctic?? anyone) all late war as the title implies.

It is easy to read (Glickstein is a journalist not a professor) but based on real research.

Arctic? I am intrigued.

I would imagine the Arctic campaign would constitute a very chilling account.

There was a French expedition to raid the Hudson's Bay Co's factories up in what was called Rupert's Land. They burned York Factory and seized a lot of furs, many of the French died of scurvy on their way home.
Might make an interesting little scenario, but the Indians would not be on the French side I imagine.
