The War of 1812, currently being quietly commemorated in its bicentennial, is viewed differently on either side of the U.S.-Canadian border. Canadians see the conflict as preserving Britain's North American possessions for eventual independent nationhood, while conventional U.S. histories have tended to tout the conflict as a successful second war for independence. This Osprey Essential Histories book explains why that distant conflict is perhaps not well understood.

Author Carl Benn, a Canadian, works hard to present both sides of the story in "The War of 1812". Although this is a very concise introduction to the conflict at less than 100 pages, there is a good faith effort to provide context to the conflict, in the midst of the Napoleonic Wars, and to examine the war aims of the U.S. and Great Britain, and of the Indian tribes drawn into the fighting. Recent U.S. scholarship underlines the important point that two consecutive U.S. administrations failed to prepare seriously for a conflict with Great Britain that their policies made likely. The result was a series of embarrassing defeats as the U.S. repeatedly attempted to invade Canada. Only late in the war were U.S. Army units sufficiently well trained to stand up to their British and Canadian opponents. The U.S. Navy had some legendary success in individual ship on ship duels at sea, but these victories were not very meaningful in the context of a British blockade and raids against coastal cities, including the burning of Washington, D.C. and the seizure of eastern Maine. U.S. victories in 1814 were just enough to justify the treaty ending the war. Benn's narrative is very readable; the text is nicely enhanced with a good selections of maps, diagrams, and period illustrations. Recommended as a good introduction to the conflict.

Excellent account of what is known in this country as the war of 1812 where the White House was burned and our national anthem developed.
Charts, artwork and graphs are used to good effect throughout this solid history which was fought from 1812 through 1815 during which england was engaged at times fighting against the French under Napoleon.
This was a time when our navy fought against the British navy with mixed results across teh world as sea battles were fought up and down the American coast of the atlantic through to the African and European coasts.
Vignettes on the evaluation of the white house prior to it's burning and the siege of Bort McHenry where Francis Scott Key penned the words to what would become the national Ante=hem of teh USA.

This book is a very good introduction to what is probably America's least understood and largely unknown war. The author covers all the main points and battles in a straightforward manner and in accordance with the Ospery books consistently excellent organization.
However this is a very British viewpoint which debunks several routinely held myths regarding the War of 1812. As such, this volume is thought provoking and somewhat more controversial than other Ospery books. If you enjoy considering different options and opinions, try this very entertaining and informative book.

I read this book in preparation for a history class on the war. And actually, the class followed the book pretty closely. This war is sometimes referred to as the "forgotten war" and now I can understand why we would want to forget that it ever happened. It was not our finest hour! Other than that, it is part of our history and worth reading to understand the politics, military, economy and thinking in 1812 America.

This is by no means an in-depth, complete account of the War of 1812, it couldn't ever be considering the relatively low page count. But what it does set out to do, it achieves wonderfully - an overview of the War with good explanations behind the causes and consequences of the war. As others have noticed, there is a slight bias towards the British side, but not so much as to make the material unreadable and the facts remain valid. Unless you're a "murrica, we're #1, yeah!" kind of person, you should be able to gloss over the occasional British pride.
