Published in 1972, this book is narrative non-fiction about the War of 1812. It includes the Battle of Bladensburg, the burning of Washington, the Battle of Baltimore, defense of Fort McHenry, Francis Scott Key’s writing of a poem that became America’s anthem, and the Battle of New Orleans. The majority takes place in 1814. A highlight for me is Monroe scouting hither and yon on horseback to surveil the terrain and report back to President Madison. Another was Madison finding himself on the front line of battle at Bladensburg, finally relocating to the rear at his aides’ suggestions. Walter Lord had the rare ability to paint pictures with words. He follows individuals from both the American and British sides at all levels. He provides the background, context, and reasons this war occurred. It is well-written and kept my interest from beginning to end. ( )
