    1. This book starts well: with a good introduction, interesting overview of the Napoleonic maritime era & robustly opinionated. However about half way through the book becomes laboured and repetitive and what was robustly opinionated becomes jarringly partisan. Understanding aside its about the naval war - Lamber pays very little notice to the battle of New Orleans whilst covering the burning of the Whitehouse. Some of the later chapters feel like historical papers that have been expanded upon [...]

    2. Overall this is a strong corrective against the many books that try portray the War of 1812 as some sort of success instead of the colossal blunder that it was. A naked land grab has been dressed up as some kind of principled stand and the handful of American naval victories has to be considered in the light of the British seizing command of the seas. Lambert is a bit over the top (comparing the use of innovations like the torpedo to IEDs and a connotation of unfair play) but is mostly fair.Star [...]

    3. Just about finished it and rapidly running out of steam / wind. Became becalmed midstream when all that seemed to be going on was talk of one naval engagement after another and once you've read one you've just about read them all no thats unfair, but it is the realm of the naval history zealot.Lambert has some good things to say and good ideas to try to get across. The problem is that this is really not that well written (or MAYBE - and I am quite prepared to concede this - not that well read.) [...]

    4. An exciting and little known piece of British history and American propaganda. This book tries too hard to debunk the propaganda at the expense of creating a more exciting narrative. The chronology can be confusing and there is a bit too much repetition. There is a Hollywood blockbuster in this story except for the conclusion because not everybody will accept it! " this is my truth now you tell me yours"

    5. Avoids the blatant jingoism that mars other accounts. Good analysis of the economic consequences of war on the beligerents.

    6. I find that the author was slightly too repetitive in something that could have been a more fast paced overview of the book.
