Summary
  • "Barbuto covers every aspect of a campaign that saw the American army come of age, even as its military leaders blundered away potential victory and the acquisition of a coveted expanse of North American territory. Vividly recreating the major battles on the Niagara peninsula - at Chippawa, Lundy's Lane, Fort Erie, and Cook's Mill - Barbuto also clarifies the role of these engagements within the overall framework of American strategy."
  • "Barbuto's analysis, unmarred by national bias, presents a balanced picture of these events from the perspective of all participants - American, British, Canadian, and Native American. He also fills an important gap by providing capsule histories of all regimental-sized units involved in the campaign. Breathing new life into these events, his far-ranging study should become the definitive work on this long-neglected campaign."--Jacket
