Summary
"Wesley Turner answers questions about the quality of the five British generals serving in the British North American colonies during the War of 1812, particularly with respect to Isaac Brock, the best known of the generals. He argues that Brock's charge up Queenston Heights - the basis for his heroic stature - was brave but hardly a demonstration of competent leadership. Turner also shows that while the other four generals displayed courage in combat, they had to face problems raised by American military successes and by the strains of warfare on the civilian population. British Generals in the War of 1812 explores why these commanders succeeded or failed and why, with the exception of Brock, they are all but forgotten."--BOOK JACKET
