This book derives from my The War of 1812: The War for Canada, a book that was written as a school text but that also elicited interest and led to requests for copies. The supply of books was never enough to meet these requests and, after the original work went out of print, I decided to revise it for the general reader rather than simply reprint a textbook.

The War of 1812 book. All this new material has been incorporated into this interesting and informative overview of a crucial period in Canada's history.

The War of 1812 was a conflict fought between the United States and the United Kingdom, with their respective allies, from June 1812 to February 1815

The War of 1812 was a conflict fought between the United States and the United Kingdom, with their respective allies, from June 1812 to February 1815. Historians in Britain often see it as a minor theatre of the Napoleonic Wars; historians in the United States and Canada see it as a war in its own right

All this new material has been incorporated into this interesting and informative overview of a crucial period in Canada's history. Tragedy and farce, bravery and cowardice, intelligence and foolishness, sense and nonsense - all these contradictions and more have characterized the War of 1812. The real significance of the series of skirmishes that collectively made up the war between 1812 and 1814 is the enormous impact they have had on Canadian and American views of themselves and of each other.

I have read a few books on the War of 1812, and I would say this is the shortest but also the clearest of all those .

In his introduction, Turner explains that the book started life as a "textbook" for his university class. If you want to learn about the War of 1812 for the first time, this is the book to get. Other things I liked about the book: (a) It puts the War of 1812 in the context of the larger world war that was raging around Napoleon Bonaparte's exploits. b) It has an appendix on weapons that is useful. c) It correctly emphasises the fate and plight of the Native Peoples involved. d) It covers the political aspects from both sides.
