Amateurs, to Arms!: A Military History of the War of 1812

John R. Elting

Begun in ignorance of the military facts of life, fought with raw troops, mostly incompetent officers, and inadequate logistics, the War of 1812 was a near disaster for the fledgling United States. This new volune in Algonquin's Major Battles and Campaigns series tells how our country's most unmilitary war was fought and almost lost. 12 pages of illustrations. 16 maps.
