I've had this book with me as my 'bible' to War of 1812 details since 1984. Mr. Auchinleck researched what has now been put into booklet format [the details] over a span of approximately 4 years. What I like best is, that although he was pro-British/Canadian, and lived in Canada for some time during the 1850s, that he meticulously weaves together a great majority of reports of each of the major War of 1812 engagements from BOTH sides. Therefore, giving the reader the opportunity to make assumptions/conclusions for themselves over and beyond the conclusions that he has so beautifully put into his writing about each engagement.

The book is called:
A History Of The War between Great Britain and the United States of America During The Years 1812, 1813 & 1814. G. Auchinleck. Arms and Armour Press and Pendragon House, Great Britain, 1972.

The Arms and Armour Press (A&AP) reference number, for those of you who would like to try to track a copy down for yourselves, is #85368 088 4.

A&AP address in 1972 was:
Lionel Leventhal Limited
2-6 Hampstead High Street,
London [England] N.W.3

Pendragon House Limited published it in Canada.
Their address in 1972 was:
71 Bathurst Street
Toronto 135 [Ontario]

Pendragon House Inc. published it in the USA.
Their address in 1972 was:
899 Broadway Avenue
Redwood City,
California 94063

Good luck and cheers,
