New light on a long forgotton conflict with no losers (or winners)
on 8 October 2013
Peter Snow has with excellent original detailed research, thrown new light on an episode unique in United States History. Little known in the UK, overshadowed in the US by the Battle of New Orleans and often misunderstood in Canada as their own victory, Peter Snow has produced a fine even handed account of who was there and what happened.
Having studied the war (of 1812) and this remarkable campaign in particular for many years I can say without hesitation it is a standout must read reference book.
I like in particular the new revelations on the influence and involvement of two talented officers Harry Smith and even more importantly the young George De Lacy Evans. references and notes are well researched and recorded.
Thank you Peter Snow for a long overdue totally original piece of work.
