The War of 1812 played a major role in creating a Canadian identity. This popular history of the war focuses on the major events and battles: the capture of Detroit, the Battle of Queenston Heights, the taking of York and Niagara, the victory at Chateauguay, the Battle of Lundy's Lane, and the battles waged at sea.

It is generously illustrated with archival images as well as with contemporary color photography taken at historical sites associated with the war.

Ronald Dale is a historian and the Superintendent of Niagara National Historic Sites, including Fort George and Brock's Monument. He is the author of Niagara-on-the-Lake: An Illustrated History.
