Niagara 1814 : The Final Invasion Paperback / softback
by Jon Latimer
Illustrated by Graham Turner
Part of the Campaign series
The War of 1812 has the strange distinction of being largely forgotten by both of its main participants, and yet its outcome was critically important to the future of North America.
In 1814, the Americans launched a last offensive in an attempt to seize Canada.
This Niagara campaign saw a number of pitched battles including Chippawa, Lundy's Lane, and Cook's Mill, where the Americans, under competent leaders such as Winfield Scott, matched the British shot for shot.
However, due to poor planning the campaign failed and Canada survived as an independent state.
