2 volume set, 9" H. B&w maps. 1. The Invasion of Canada - 5th printing, ISBN 0385658397, 363 pp - "To America's leaders in 1812, an invasion of Canada seemed to be 'a mere matter of marching,' as Thomas Jefferson confidently predicted. How could a nation of 8 million fail to subdue a struggling colony of 300,000? Yet, when the campaign of 1812 ended, the only Americans left on Canadian soil were prisoners of war. Three American armies had been forced to surrender, and the British were in control of all of Michigan Territory and much of Indiana and Ohio. In this remarkable account of the war's first year and the events that led up to it, Pierre Berton transforms history into an engrossing narrative that reads like a fast-paced novel. Drawing on personal memoirs and diaries as well as official dispatches, (he) has been able to get inside the characters of the men who fought the war - the common soldiers as well as the generals, the bureaucrats and the profiteers, the traitors and the loyalists." 2. Flames Across the Border - 2nd printing, ISBN 0385658389, 492 pp - "The Canada-U.S. border was in flames as the War of 1812 continued. York's parliament buildings were on fire, Niagara-on-the-Lake burned to the ground and Buffalo lay in ashes. Even the American capital of Washington, far to the south, was put to the torch. The War of 1812 had become one of the nineteenth century's bloodiest struggles. (This) is a compelling evocation of war at its most primeval level - the muddy fields, the frozen forests and the ominous waters where men fought and died. Pierre Berton skilfully captures the courage, determination and terror of the universal soldier, giving new dimension and fresh perspectives to this early conflct between the two emerging nations of North America." Interiors - clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - minor wear at top/bottom of spines.
