Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The author gives us the story of the IMUC in one volume for everyone to enjoy, but has made it much more than a history book. I found it hard to put down and recommend it to anybody wanting to discover an account with a Canadian perspective on the War of 1812. Yes, we couldn't had defeated the invaders without the British regulars, but the IMUC proved their worth and their ability to stand beside them.

I'm looking forward to his next book.

By LadyAbby on June 10 2012
Format: Paperback
I read this book on the recommendation of a history buff friend. I was not too familiar with the 1812 war - only what is found in school history books - but, after reading this, it has whetted my appetite to know more. I found the book engrossing, enlightening and very easy to read. It sweeps you along as the war progresses. The style in which it is written is more like reading an historical novel rather than a 'dusty historical' school book. The extensive maps and pictures lend clarity to the written words, making them all the more relevant to the subject.

I am not a professional reviewer but just a reader who recommends this book to anyone who wishes to have a more intensive knowledge of the War of 1812.

I see he has further books being released later this year and next year. I look forward to reading them.
