The War of 1812 would either make America a global power that swept all the way to the Pacific—or break it into small pieces bound to mighty England. It was a second revolution of sorts, to prove to the British that America had to be taken seriously. The principal actors in this drama were James and Dolley Madison and Andrew and Rachel Jackson.  Their courage and determination would shape America’s destiny.

From the Back Cover:

"1812 is splendidly researched and finely written--a fiery tale of our country's youth, of mighty passions, a half-for-gotten war, and incomparable men and women. David Nevin's readers are blessed" -Ralph Peters, author of Red Army

"A rich, robust historical novel of the kind we don't get often enough. Famous men and women spring vividly to life--action abounds--1812 is a great read" - John Jakes

"It was a perilous and pivotal time for the young and not-entirely-United States, but it has been the most unremembered time in American history. Until now. The faded old etchings of battle on land and sea, of statesmen, heroes, villains (and their ladyloves), are now, in David Nevin's 1812, brought to vivid life and color, tumultuous intensity, and you-are there immediacy." -Gary Jennings, New York Times bestselling author of Aztec

"Whatever we have gained by technology we have lost by ease. These people who lived in 1812 faced danger, adventure, and--no income tax! Read on." -Rita Mae Brown, author of Dolley
