The Civil War of 1812: American Citizens, British Subjects, Irish Rebels, & Indian Allies

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Alan Taylor

Narrated By: Andrew Garman

Date: December 2010

Duration: 20 hours 45 minutes

Summary:

Pulitzer Prize-winning historian Alan Taylor tells the riveting story of a war that redefined North America. In a world of double identities, slippery allegiances, and porous borders, the leaders of the American Republic and the British Empire struggled to control their own diverse peoples. Taylor's vivid narrative of an often brutal- sometimes farcical-war reveals much about the tangled origins of the United States and Canada.

    I really enjoyed this book. I would like to read a book regarding 1776 written in a similar way.

    I enjoyed the book. The author presents the War of 1812 in a very thorough manner. He gets a little too far in the weeds however in some aspects of his story. His title of the book seems more like a way to get hide the fact that the book is about the war with Britain on the Canadian border. It's not a civil war per se since it doesn't meet the criteria of what a civil war is. If the book was titled, "The 1812 War for Canada" it might not sell as well. Still, a very scholarly approach to the US, Canadian front during the war. I found it interesting and learned a great deal. I rated it a three but more likely a three and a half. For the reader who enjoys reading about early American history, I would recommend it.
