This book is the story behind the forgotten war between Britain and the United States of America in 1812 - 1815, concentrating on the brillaint part played by Isaac Brock. The main reason why this war has been overlooked was because Wellington was engaging France,under Naploeon, in the Peninsular Wars, but it is not an over exaggeration to say that if those early battles of 1812 and1813 had beenlost there would not havebeen a Canada.
Jonathan Riley, himself a former Lieutenant General, has written a great book covering the Brock's life and his campaign in Canada, with the knowledge of a senior and decorated Army Officer.
Being the former Curator of the Museum of Brock's successor regiment I can highly recommed the book. The Museum is The Rifles (Berkshire and Wiltshire) museum in Salisbury.
