War of 1812

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 5-8-- An interesting , well-researched presentation that offers exciting personalities and battles in a readable, colorful text. Fitting somewhere between Richard Morris's simpler The War of 1812 (Lerner) and Albert Marrin's detailed 1812: The War Nobody Won (Atheneum, both 1985), this title is informative enough for reports and exciting enough for military buffs. Bosco describes the background and causes of the war, its major battles, and mentions briefly its consequences. If occasionally he perpetuates some of the legends, this is balanced by thorough research elsewhere. The format is clean and attractive, with occasional black-and-white period reproductions and maps, and a chronology to help readers keep it all straight. --Sally Bates Goodroe, Houston Public Library
