KIRKUS REVIEW

An interestingly personalized account of the War of 1812 as seen through the eyes of British General Isaac Brock, who died leading his troops against American invasion at the rim of Niagara Falls. General Brock, though a minor historical figure in the United States, is revered by Canadians as the savior of their country. His alliance with the great Tecumseh and his capture of the American forts at Detroit and Mackinac Island are among the episodes narrated colorfully and with fidelity to detail by the author.
