Re: New 1812 book out
- I look forward to getting to the book next week. the NYRB article is
very complimentary, and suggests a very balanced approach to the war.
Viv Nelles, who endorses the book on the dust cover, is Professor of
Canadian History at McMaster, a relative of the Nelles family of "The
Forty" (Grimsby), and an American. Sort of reflects some of the
complications of the war itself.
