Book by Graves Donald E

Críticas:

"The quality of writing and information is superb." -- Geoffrey Hayes * CBRA * "With the aid of Bill Constable's excellent maps, and a number of the participant's own descriptions, Donald Graves furnishes a clear, easy-to-follow account, demonstrating a through understanding of the tactical factors and leadership qualities which affected the outcome." -- Ed Dovey * Military History Illustrated * "Highly recommended for anyone interested in the British Army's hard fought 1812-15 battles in North America." -- Ian Kemp "Donald Graves appears determined to become a one-man-band on the War of 1812 ... Meticulously documented, cogently argued, this book alone will likely secure his reputation among military historians." -- James Elliott * Hamilton Spectator *
