The Invasion of Canada 1812-1813, Berton, Pierre
3 The Invasion of Canada 1812-1813
Berton, Pierre
Little, Brown 1980 0316092169 / 9780316092166 First Hardcover Fine Very Good+ Jacket 
Stated First American Edition in original dust jacket. Clean ivory boards with orange cloth spine, gold lettering on spine; blind-stamped decoration on cover. No fraying or wear.

Enclosed in new archival quality removable mylar cover. To a small number of American leaders in the summer of 1812, the invasion and annexation of Canada seemed to be, as Thomas Jefferson confidently predicted, "a mere matter of marching." Yet two years later when this "War of 1812" was abandoned on the bloody banks of the River Raisin, the only Americans left on Canadian soil were prisoners of war, three entire American armies had been forced to surrender (one without every having fired a shot), and the British suddenly controlled all of Michigan as well as most of present-day Indiana and Ohio. In this vivid account of the war's first year and of the events leading up to it, Pierre Berton rescues a half-forgotten chapter from the story of Canadian-American relations and turns it into an engrossing, historically accurate narrative that reads like a fast-paced novel. Drawing on personal memoirs, soldiers' diaries, and official dispatches, berton portrays all sides of the men who fought the war. 026752
