    One thought on “Field of Glory: The Battle of Crysler's Farm, 1813”

    1. This was the first Donald Graves history that I read. After working for two summers in the area and touring many of the sites I felt I had learned a fair bit of what happened. I definitely missed a few things. The appendices are great and the detail of what the weapons of the day could do is very interesting. My biggest disappointment with the book is the realization that Canada flooded the battle field as part of the St. Lawrence Seaway.

    2. Thorough but yet very readable. Covers a lot of the background to the battle, the battle itself and the aftermath. Enjoyed reading it.

    3. Graves's books on the War of 1812 and other conflicts provide personal accounts, anecdotes and views of the time as well as a clear account of events and great explanations of how things worked then.
