A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

Begun in ignorance of the military facts of life, fought with raw troops, mostly incompetent officers, and inadequate logistics, the War of 1812 was a near disaster for the fledgling United States. This new volune in Algonquin's Major Battles and Campaigns series tells how our country's most unmilitary war was fought and almost lost. 12 pages of illustrations. 16 maps.

From the Back Cover:

Amateurs, to Arms! Examines in succession the campaigns of 'Mr. Madison's War': the U.S. invasion of Canada; the key naval battles on Lakes Erie and Champlain; the British invasion via the Chesapeake Bay and its repulse at Baltimore; and the campaign leading to the American victory at New Orleans, fought and won after the war was over. Elting describes the planning and preparations (or lack of them) for the campaigns, tells how they were fought, and analyzes the battlefield performance of both sides.
