A Wampum Denied: Procter's War of 1812, Second Edition (Carleton Library) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A Wampum Denied reassesses the much-maligned career of Henry Procter, commander of the British forces, traces the Canadian/British/Native side of the conflict (amid a literature dominated by the American view), and casts new light on an allied military strategy that very nearly succeeded, but when it failed, failed spectacularly.

Synopsis:

Procter, Tecumseh, and Brock, their disparate war aims, and the "all or nothing" character of the campaigns they waged still seem larger than life. Yet Sandy Antal's careful reconstruction of Native and national aspiration, vested colonial interest, and territorial aggression reveals motives and expedients that were as often mundane as heroic.

About the Author

Sandy Antal, co-author of Duty Nobly Done, became a teacher after retiring from twenty years as a major in the Canadian Forces. He now lives in Cameron, Ontario.
