Product Description

Review

Feltoe has done the study of the War of 1812 a valuable service by redrawing period maps and adding icons showing the relative positions and movements of the forces involved. These maps are among the best to appear in many years. The Call to Arms is an excellent popular study of the opening events of the conflict in Upper Canada and one looks forward to the subsequent volumes with anticipation.



When the full series is finally available, I look forward to using it as my go-to guide to the Canadian portion of the war. If you're looking for only one book or set to read, Feltoe is so far an excellent choice.

Once again, Richard Feltoe has suceeded in bringing history to life by his story telling, vivid descriptions and illustrations. This is a book which expands on his previous publication with regard to the War of 1812 and, like, that makes it a very easy read for a non-historian. This is a book which should be made available in schools (those schools who still teach Canadian history!) and libraries.

I note this is the first of six books in a series, and I look forward to reading future publications.

Worth a look -- a quick read! Jan. 11 2014
By jim nagy - Published on Amazon.com

This first installment to a long-forgotten, "small" war is interesting and very detailed. I found it fascinating because the author is Canadian and how they view this "aggression" from the Canadian viewpoint. It's hard to believe American leaders were so timid and inept but lack of victories and lost lives serve to bear out these shortcomings. This book is purely for the history buff who wants to learn about this obscure war with Britain. Fun to read and easy to understand. I'm reading the entire series to get the full impact of this little war of "Yankee aggression".
