The year was 1812, and the United States teetered once again on the brink of war with Great Britain. Caught in England's ongoing battle with France, the United States found its ports blockaded and its young sailors pressed into service aboard British vessels. War of 1812, Revised Edition tells of the young country's heroic campaign to beat back one of the most powerful military forces in the world—and to rid America of foreign powers once and for all. With full-color and black-and-white images and maps, informative sidebars, a useful chronology and glossary, and an index, this new edition is completed by a new chapter about the technological and tactical innovations used during this war.


Full-color and black-and-white photographs and illustrations. Full-color maps. Sidebars. Glossary. Further reading. Index.
