Description
In the summer of 1814, the United States of America teetered on the brink of disaster? The war it had declared against Great Britain two years earlier seemed headed toward American defeat. Then the young nation's most implacable nemesis, the ruthless British admiral George Cockburn, launched an invasion of Washington in a daring attempt to decapitate the government and crush the American spirit. The British succeeded spectacularly, burning down most of the city's landmarks - including the White House and the Capitol-and driving beleaguered American forces to regroup for a last-ditch defense of Baltimore. The outcome of that "perilous fight" would help change the outcome of the war-and with it, the fate of the fledgling American republic. With bravura storytelling, Steve Vogel reveals the intrigue and the heroism behind this titanic struggle. Drawing from the perspective of both sides, Through the Perilous Fight re-creates the thrilling six weeks when the American nation rose from the ashes and won a victorious rebirth for their new country.
