"The conflict between Great Britain and the United States of America, which Canadians know as the War of 1812, was really a maritime war. Although there were many hard-foughtbattles ashore, it was at sea that this struggle had its origin, and where the issue was finally decided. [...] The Maritime War of 1812 was fought o n the lakes of Canada as well as on the Atlantic OCean. On fresh water it became a race between the shipbuilders. This lead to an endless demand for men to man the new ships as they were completed." - from Pullen's foreword. Very good. 15.00
