The Thames 1813 : The War of 1812 on the Northwest Frontier Paperback

Illustrated by Peter Dennis

Part of the Campaign series

Description

The battle of the Thames was the culmination of a bloody campaign that saw American forces clash with the British and their Native American allies on multiple occasions.

In a battle that included the future US president William Henry Harrison, American naval hero Oliver Hazard Perry and the legendary Shawnee leader Tecumseh the Americans prevailed, due in part to their imaginative use of Kentucky mounted riflemen to charge British regular infantry and artillery.

Their victory allowed them to secure the North-West frontier, a crucial strategic gain in the War of 1812. Drawing on his expertise of US-Native American conflicts, historian John F.

Winkler investigates the battle of the Thames, bringing the conflict to life through detailed analysis, combat reports and stunning specially commissioned illustrations.
