Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 098421352X, Paperback)

Long overshadowed by the American Revolution and the Civil War, the War of 1812 remains a largely forgotten conflict. Its origins as part of the larger Napoleonic wars layered complex issues that to this day make the conflict difficult to understand. The bicentennial of the War of 1812 is now upon us. With an engaging question-and-answer format, this book offers a concise and informative introduction to the War of 1812, clearing much of the fog that surrounds it.
