BOOK - The Incredible War of 1812- A Military History.
By J. Mackay Hitsman.

Incredible War of 1812 J. Mackay Hitman's account of the War of 1812, first published in 1965, is both exciting and authoritative, and is regarded by many experts as the best one-volume history of that conflict. It is an engrossing account of the causes of the war and of the campaigns and battles that raged on land and water, from the Great Lakes to the Gulf of Mexico. Hitsman describes the life and role of the soldiers - both regulars and the militia - and the difficulties of waging war in largely trackless territory, where rivers and lakes were the main means of transport. His examination of the strengths and weaknesses of the political and military leaders on both sides helps us to understand the events as they unfold, and he dispels some of the myths that have pervaded many earlier accounts.

This new edition, edited by well known War of 1812 scholar Donald E. Graves, contains the entire text of the original and much new material:
  • Foreword by Sir Christopher Prevost (descendant of the wartime British commander-in-chief)
  • Introductory essay by Donald E. Graves
  • More than 50 illustrations of leaders, uniforms, weapons, warships, medals and battle scenes
  • Twenty maps of campaigns and battles
  • Appendices listing British and Canadian military units and their modern successors; the First Nations that fought on both sides; the warships of the opposing navies; and the medals and awards of the war
  • A comprehensive bibliography with more than 1,000 entries
