Series: Chatham Pictorial Histories. Regarded by many at the time as an unnecessary conflict, the War of 1812 was provoked by mutual misunderstandings and prosecuted without conviction on either side. It was also a war of surprises: the hitherto omnipotent Royal Navy suffered a series of humiliating losses at sea, while the American invasion of Canada, regarded ar merely a matter of marching, was defeated by a makeshift force of colonial militia, native Indians and a handful of regulars.

Пользовательский отзыв - Evan Edlund - LibraryThing. A great book about the naval war between Britain and America

dust jacket has some tattered edges

Though of a size for coffee table, has lot of good information along with photos. Good synopsis of the War 1812.

This book is part of Chatham's PICTORIAL Histories. As such, one would ordinarily buy this book for it's reproductions of great paintings, prints and sketches depicting the Naval engagements of the War of 1812.
The text reads well, and the captions describe the images well, but the problem with this book, is that ALL the images are in Black and White!
If this book had been published in the 1960s, 70s even early 80s, it could be understood, but by the late 1990s, books with color images were plentiful. It's clear that the publishers decided to go for a cheap selling price, by printing in Black and White., instead of running it in color, selling at a
higher price, and possibly loosing buyers.
Dissapointed, but will keep the book...I don't know of any other book that shows that much Naval art of the War of 1812.

This book is edited by Robert Gardiner and has sections written by Andrew Lambert, Robert Malcomson, Roger Morriss, Stephen Chumbley, Julian Mannering, and Robert Gardiner. It is lavishly illustrated by almost 300 black and white drawings of ships, battles, maps, and people.

It is divided into three main sections: War on the High Seas, War on the Great Lakes, and The War on the Coast. There is also an introduction and a postscript: 1815 The Hundred Days.

Overall, this is an excellent book, although the introduction, written by Andrew Lambert, contains some questionable claims.
