This dramatic account of the War of 1812 fills a surprising gap in the popular literature of the nation''s formative years. It is this second and final war of independence that established the young nation as a permanent power. Full of fascinating characters, A. J. Langguth''s riveting account covers a vast panorama of battles, from the American sacking of Toronto and the British burning of the White House and the Capitol, to the thrilling war at sea and on the Great Lakes and the final spectacular American victory at New Orleans.
From the Publisher:
A narrative of the War of 1812 links its events to the War of Independence and American beliefs about Manifest Destiny, in an account that documents key battles while evaluating the contributions of such figures as Thomas Jefferson, Dolley Madison, and Davy Crockett. Simultaneous.
Annotation:
In this fresh account of the War of 1812, historian A. J. Langguth provides a fascinating review of the causes of the war, its the major battles, and the dramatic personalities who embodied the new nation as it was tested, on its own soil, for the first time after its founding. Despite many setbacks, sacrifices, and close calls both on land and sea, America prevailed, and came out more confident, having shown that it could be a significant player on the world stage. In UNION 1812, Langguth elevates this lesser-known war to greater significance in American history.

Praise

"The strength of Langguth's UNION 1812 lies in its keen appreciation of the personalities of the American figures (and British ones) who played pivotal roles in one of the most important yet least-remembered events in our history--what Langguth calls 'the second war of independence'....We are in Langguth's debt for this vivid retelling of a war that has everything to do with who we are and how we got this way." - Jon Meacham 12/24/2006
