Inhaltsangabe: It was by far the bloodiest, most dramatic, and longest-running war to take place on Canadian soil. Full of acts of great folly and great courage, and marked by the actions of larger-than-life characters, such as General Isaac Brock and Tecumseh, it left Canadians and Americans with a clearer sense of who they were ? or who they were not. It taught the British a lesson on the limits of power, and the Natives on the western frontier lost their last hope of a homeland secure from western expansion. Author and historian Victor Suthren has written a dramatic and informative book on this pivotal moment in our past, unravelling the story of a complex struggle, and bringing the battles and the many fascinating personalities vividly to life. The result is an excitingly written, heavily illustrated, full-colour history. Written to tie in with History TV?s mini-series ?The War of 1812,? this book draws on research done for that television series.
? The War of 1812 is an unprecedented gallery of paintings, prints, and maps.?
