When James FitzGibbon dons the British army’s redcoat, little does he know that he will be sent to backwoods Upper Canada just prior to a war that will shape the North American continent. FitzGibbon’s memoire details his experiences during the War of 1812, from his service as adjutant to heroic General Isaac Brock, to his own use of deception during the Battles of Stoney Creek and Beaver Dams, through the bloody conflicts at Crysler’s Farm, Lundy’s Lane and Fort Erie where his attitudes change. His story reveals how outnumbered defenders are able to repel an American invasion and their resistance gives life to a new nation — Canada. Redcoat 1812 is an action-filled tale of leadership, valour, duty and sacrifice that blends the best elements of The Book of Negroes and The Red Badge of Courage.

    Redcoat 1812

    A good read, that animates our local history. This is mandatory reading for anyone wishing to understand the complexity and chronology of the war.
