BOOK - Capital in Flames, The American Attack on York, 1813
"The most traumatic day in the history of Toronto"
By Robert Malcomson.

The megacity of Toronto was the frontier town of York in 1813 when it suffered its most traumatic day. Though it was the capital of Upper Canada (Ontario), york had only weak defenses, and when military leaders decided to make it the central depot and naval dockyard on The Great Lakes early in the War of 1812, they essentially painted a bull's-eye on the town and its 700 residents.

Robert Malcolmson brings to life the politicians, soldiers and citizens whose destinies clashed at York. He explores the causes of the event and allows the voices of the mighty and the meek to recount their experiences. readers will discover fresh insights into the capture of Upper Canada's capital and the people who lived through that harrowing spring.

This is the first full-scale book on the attack on York. Historian Robert Malcolmson's account is based on years of research in primary resources. It challenges some of the conventional ideas about the battle and raises many intriguing questions.
