Where men fought and died Pierre Berton skilfully captures the courage determination and terror of the universal soldier giving new dimension and fresh perspective to this early conflict between the two emerging nations of North America The second of Berton's two volume set on the War of 1812 brings the story to its tragic conclusion Was any other war ever fought that achieved so little at a cost of so many who never understood what they were fighting for? I doubt it And apart from the great grief carried by so many due to all the bloodshed nothing really changed between these two nations as if no war had been fought except for how the war helped to forge the identities of the two young nations involved For America it meant they were now taken seriously on a world stage and the few battles they won were enthusiastically celebrated giving fuel for newfound national pride For Canada a common identity was forged as settlers of many backgrounds banded together to successfully resist an invader This resulted in a shared appreciation of cherished Canadian values that distinguished the colonials from their bellicose republican neighbours In fact one could probably say that the War of 1812 was the seed of many key distinctions between Canadian and American values Jugaad Innovation its tragic conclusion Was any other war ever fought that achieved so little at a cost of so many who never understood what they were fighting for?

To the torch The War of 1812 had become one of the nineteenth century's bloodiest strugglesFlames Across the Border is a compelling evocation of war at its most primeval level the muddy fields the frozen forests and the ominous waters I appreciate that the author was taking this book on as a social history of the War of 1812 from the Canadian perspective and that it was so centered on the people involved He covered an impressively wide range of those involved including people on all sides of the war and several folks who didn't want be involved in the war at all I was also pleased by the conclusion which hit a happy medium of wrapping things up and reflecting on the war's place in history without going on too long or straying from the book's main themesBut I have to admit this one did not suck me in It was getting to be a chore finishing it by the end as there were just so many people many of whom populated just a page or two and yet got a whole mini biography in that time I had trouble keeping track of who was who and which side they were on because there were so many names And even if the author insists that he was writing entirely off of primary source documents it still felt a little too much like speculation and fictionalized accounts when he wrote about what people were thinking and feeling at each momentAn interesting book and one worth reading but I feel it could have used a bit editing to make it stronger and readable
