This volume about the War of 1812 differs from that of Henry Adams in several areas, chiefly it was written about 70 years later and the author had access to materials and documents (particularly from Canadian and British sources) not available to Adams. Dr. Mahon, professor emeritus at University of Florida saw the war more as an academician than as a diplomat (which Adams was) and wrote a work that has value to both scholars and the general public. Originally published in 1972.
