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.(War of 1812 magazine)
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.(Niagara Life magazine)
