In this famous book on the War of 1812, military historian Donald E. Graves tells the story of one of the most hard-fought military actions in North American history. On a summer evening in July 1814, within sight of Niagara Falls, five thousand American, British and Canadian soldiers struggled desperately in a close-range battle that raged on into the night. By morning more than a third had become casualties. The two armies had fought to the point of exhaustion, and who won has long been a matter of dispute.

LundyÕs Lane was the bloodiest battle of the War of 1812 in the northern theatre. It was the high mark of the 1814 Niagara campaign, which was the longest campaign of the war, and the last time that Canada suffered a major foreign invasion.

In his analysis of this still-controversial battle, Donald E. Graves narrates the background and events in detail while providing a thorough examination of the weaponry, tactics and personalities of the opposing armies. The result is a book that has become a classic of musket-period military history. It will appeal to all those interested in the history of North America, the War of 1812, the Napoleonic period Ð and the face of combat.

This Bicentennial Edition includes a foreword by John R. Grodzinski as well as revisions to the text covering the anniversary of the battle in 2014 and the granting of military honours to the descendants of the regiments that took part.
