The War of 1812

When a disastrous campaign against Napoleon´s French troops leaves him facing a court-martial, British Colonel John Hawkins accepts a posting in "The Canadas" to give his career, and his life, a fresh start.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Great Read Being a bit of a history buff, I picked this book up a couple of weeks ago from a friend of mine. The subject matter is the war of 1812, that is what really appealed to me. As a Hamiltonian and a local history buff I have always been both interested and fascinated by our own local history, but found it to be lacking in interesting readable material. Well right after reading the back cover page of this book and finding out that the action takes place in Fort George, Queenston Heights and Stoney Creek, well, I couldn’t ask for anything better nor more local than that. This is a historical fiction novel which takes me back to the 1800’s in and around our own area. To say the least, I was fascinated by both the story and the cast of characters, the real ones and the fictional ones as well. A love story set in a historical time with lots of action, right up my alley. It took me just over two weeks to read it and I’m sorry it’s finished. I won’t delve into the story as I will leave that end up to you, but it’s well worth the read and a real page turner. This novel is suitable for anyone over the age of 16. This book will both fascinate you and make you want to read more and more about the war of 1812 and how it relates to us and this area. I will certainly recommend this book to anyone. I sincerely hope the author continues to write about this topic, this area and this time frame. Bravo to G. F. Anderson for a great and enlightening read, it opens many doors and windows to the past. I would also recommend this book be on the must read list of all public and high school students. I remain John
