I was sorry to find he is no longer with us because he has an ability to make a subject interesting and show the humor that I haven't seen in many other military authors. I look forward to reading others by him!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

HISTORY WITH AN EDGE
As part of my research for a novel, I have studied numerous books about the War of 1812. There are several excellent books that cover the whole war, but Amateurs to Arms! stands out as my favorite. The title fairly depicts the author¿s approach to the subject. But after all, without an adequate army or navy, and without adequate fortifications or funds, the States declared war on the mightiest military power in the world. For readers in need of only one book about the War of 1812, or in need of a book to get a good overview before delving into more detailed coverage, I whole-heartedly recommend Amateurs to Arms!Was this review helpful?
