Main Description
Since war was declared in June 1812, Upper Canada had been the target of a succession of American attacks and invasion attempts. Fortunately, these had all been fended off, but only at a high cost in lives and devastation of property on all sides (British, Canadian, American, and Native). By the beginning of 1814, a new threat was looming from across the Niagara River, as a new and this time vastly better-trained American army was preparing for a new invasion attempt. Following the story already traced in the previous three books in this series, The Tide of War now recounts the first six months of that calamitous and crucial year's campaigning on the "Northern frontier" and the fight to control Upper Canada.
Main Description
Throughout 1812 and 1813, Upper Canada had been the principle target for a succession of American invasions and attacks. Fortunately they all had been repulsed, but at a high cost in lives and the devastation of property on both sides of the border. By the beginning of 1814, both sides were determined to bring the war to an end with a decisive victory through an escalated commitment of men and military resources. Continuing the story already detailed in "The Call to Arms," "The Pendulum of War," and"The Flames of War," "The Tide of War" documents the first six months of 1814 and the ongoing fight for the domination and control of Upper Canada.
