The Weight of Vengeance

The United States, the British Empire, and the War of 1812

Troy Bickham

  • Timed to publish on the 200th anniversary of the outbreak of the War of 1812.
  • Takes a truly transatlantic perspective, arguing that Britain was a driving force in declaring, shaping and concluding the war.
  • Contends that the United States emerged victorious, despite the ambiguity of the peace treaty.
  • Moves beyond a military account of the war.
