Important American history for the citizen 7 Mar. 2014
By Edmund Jimenez - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Seeing Mr. Watson speak about his book makes it clear that he is on fire about his subject—the War of 1812. Reading his book confirms his passion and excites the reader.

Remarkably, Mr. Watson skillfully conveys explanations and clues to American history in only a few hundred pages. He does it so well, that the reader feels a kind of melancholy when the book comes to its end.

The author is refreshingly direct in his evaluation of individuals and events in the War of 1812—and makes sense of it.

The only irritant encountered while reading was the occasional lapse into malapropism. Again, a rarity.

Mr. Watson has written a wonderfully enlightening work of history.

Professor Watson is one of America's (somewhat unsung) national treasures ... 20 Sept. 2014
By Oldskool - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Professor Watson is one of America's (somewhat unsung) national treasures (preeminent historian, writer, lecturer, ...) and in this book he not only brings back to life, America's most forgotten and, what is generally thought of as America's most 'boring' war ~ The War of 1812 ~ but Professor Watson presents the war in a most fascinating and compelling way.

America's First Crisis: The War of 1812 9 Feb. 2014
By Betty Seifert - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A rather flippant approach. Dodges through the details without taking much of a look. The overall message that this is not a war to be overlooked is good. The long range effects of the war should be studied more.
