A War of 1812 NovelBook - 2016
"The story of the War of 1812, which had no clear victor, is a conflict that will continually be debated among historians. It has been described as the war that both sides won and the war that nobody won. A Canadian historian suggested that Americans think that they won the war, that Canadians know that they won the war, and that the British are blissfully unaware that the conflict took place. It is a complex story. Using the War of 1812 as the setting for Backlash, Mike Klaassen has done a superb job of weaving his story around the facts. This novel is extremely engaging and with Klaassen|s attention to detail and accurate portrayal of the life and times of that era, his book is not only highly entertaining but also very educational. Readers will enjoy the drama and are sure to learn something new. Backlash is a very welcome addition to recent fiction and nonfiction based on the colourful events at a time when America and Canada were anything but friendly neighbours." -- Ron Dale, author, historian, and former Superintendent of Niagara National Historic Sites of Canada.
