"One of the most interesting of the handful of books that have been coming out for the bicentennial of the Second War for Independence...of value...a very good book for anyone interested in this most neglected war or in the experience of the American soldier"--The NYMAS Review; "very useful"--Michigan Historical Review; "greater familiarity with the Americans who fought the War of 1812 is essential for military historians and professional soldiers to fully comprehend the development of the U.S. Army. An ideal place to start that journey is John C. Fredriksen's collection of eyewitness accounts, The War of 1812 in Person. No scholar has made a closer study of the available sources on the American military in the War of 1812...Fredriksen has performed a noteworthy service by resurrecting a lost generation of American soldiers...students and scholars should be grateful for such a firm foundation from which to launch new studies for the War of 1812's military facets"--Army History; "a wonderful addition to the scholarship of the War of 1812. This book provides students of the conflict with first-hand accounts from the participants themselves. It is essential reading for those who want to know what the war was like from those who fought it"--Northwest Ohio History.
