About this product
- DescriptionOf all the struggles that took place along the border between the United States and the British provinces of Canada during the War of 1812, the one that lasted the longest was the crucial battle for control of Lake Ontario. Because the armies on both sides depended on it for transportation and supply, control of the lake was a key element in American invasion attempts and the defensive actions of the British. Lords of the Lake tells the story of the contest from the days of the incompetent Provincial Marine to the launch of the 104-gun ship St Lawrence, larger than Nelson's Victory. Robert Malcomson's absorbing narrative is readable, vivid, yet impeccable in its scholarship.
- Author BiographyRobert Malcomson's books all won the John Lyman Book Award for Canadian maritime or naval history. To the great sorrow of his family, friends and historians of the War of 1812, Robert Malcomson died in 2009.
