Summary
Appealing to students of early American history and especially those with an interesting the mid-Atlantic states, this reprint of the 1972 original work on the War of 1812 provides a compelling narrative of the political and military strategy surrounding the battles in the Chesapeake bay in 1814. One of the enduring accounts of this period, the work provides a window into the actions and motivations of the warring parties and details the events that shaped this period in American military history, and subsequent relations with foreign powers in the young nation. Lord (1917-2002) was also the author of the popular documentary history of the sinking of the Titanic, A Night to Remember. Annotation ©2012 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
