    Interesting, but a couple of obvious errors

    More detail than what I have seen in most books as to the background to the causes of the war of 1812, and as to the negotiations that led to the Treaty of Ghent. Best explanation that I have read for Wellington declining the invitation to take over the defence of Canada. He exaggerates the role of the U.S. Navy despite the almost complete blockade the the British imposed on the east coast following the initial U.S. successes and the resulting British order not to engage in single ship battles with ships of superior strength. Some glaring errors though, such as the comment that Captain Brooke lay dying on the deck of Chesapeake in his victory when he in fact survived his wounds and lived to see his son join the Navy.
