I could read Mr. Sugden's material all day, every day!! His word choice, style and linguistic mastery is art!! For me, it's Tolkien, Sugden ... and many others of course, but I LOVE reading anything written by John Sugden. It is very easy to see how deeply he cares for his subject matter by the way in which he writes.

I especially enjoyed reading this book from an English point of view. The Indians had a great love and respect for their great white father, King George. The Indians certainly had better and more secure relationships with both the English and the French. Over the centuries they relied on fur traders and trappers in the northwest for guns and beads. While the French and English attempted to build mutually favorable relationships with the tribes, for the most part Americans spent time stealing their land, breaking promises and burning villages to the ground and pushing the Indians farther west into a land on arid and non-productive soil. Of course the Indians were ruthless when challenged as well, but the Americans carried the "big stick" and over time reduced great nations to sporadic hubbels or alchol and illiterate bands. Much of this is changing, but for the most part it came too little too late to successfully navigate the changing social and political environment of the US.

When the Battle of Lake Erie was lost to the Americans, and that in itself is a story to read about, a small force of British and Indians under the leadership of General Proctor and the Shawnee chief Tecumseh were drive farther into the northwest territory by the Americans. The definitive battle between these two opposing forces took place in 1813 at Moraviantown. This was the decisive victory by the Americans won by the Americans on which was still British soil. When the British turned tail and ran, Tecumseh and his followers stood tall and defended their territory until all were killed.

Proctor was portrayed as a coward and Tecumseh courageous. He fought until his death giving no quarter to anyone. The book speaks of Proctor's withdrawl, how the two forces engaged in battle at Moraviantown, the loss of "face" that followed between the British and their Indian allies, and the loss of forunes by the British with this defeat, and the inspiration given the Americans with the defeat of the British and death of Tecumseh.

During the War of 1812, American land forces were not successful. This battle certainly inspired our nation. The victory at New Orleans was meaningless because a peace treaty had been signed nearly a month before the battle took place. But it gave American forces great courage and propelled Andrew Jackson into the limelight and settled the question of confrontation on a mass scale between Great Britan and America. The fact that the Brits burnt our new nation's capital to the ground and languished in the spoils of war with this victory, prepared for their ultimate defeat in Baltimore harbor and their decision to leave our shores. We have always thought that our navy was born during this war. And in many respects it was. But don't underestimate our victories at sea by our new navy, privateers, and shore batteries during the revolutionary war and decades afterwards.

A very enlightening book and a read for all.
