Review: The Incredible War of 1812

User Review  - Walter Burton - Goodreads

This book is a very detailed offering of the war of 1812. If you want to have a quick read heavy on the action and light on the documentation this will not be for you. It is very well researched with lots of excerpts from the key players on both side do the war. Read full review
