BOOK - Where Right and Glory Lead! The battle of Lundy's Lane, 1814. .
By Donald E. Graves.

Fought near Niagara Falls, it was the most bitterly contested battle of the War of 1812. This is the story of one of the most hard fought military actions of Niagara Falls, 5,000 American, British and Canadian soldiers struggled desperately in a close range battle that raged on into the dark. By morning more than a third had become casualties. The two armies had fought to the point of exhaustion, and who won has long been a matter of dispute.

Lundy's Lane was the bloodiest battle of the War of 1812 and the bloodiest fought on what is now Canadian soil. It was the high mark of hte 1814 Niagara campaign, which was the longest campaign of the war and the last time that Canada suffered a major foreign invasion.

In his analysis of this still controversial battle, Donald E. Graves narrates the background events in precise detail while providing a thorough examination of the weaponry, tactics and personalities of the opposing armies. The result is possible the most thorough analysis of a musket-period action to appear in print and will appeal to those interested in the War of 1812, Napoleonic warfare, and the face of combat.
