From the back cover:
"In one of the most dramatic campaigns in the War of 1812, the British decided to strike at the American capital, Washington, DC. A force of Wellington's Peninsular War veterans under Major-General Robert Ross landed, routed the Americans at the battle of Bladensburg and took Washington on August 24th, 1814, burning the White House. Buoyed by the success, the British passed on towards the other vital regional centre, Baltimore. With his intimate knowledge of the events in this theater of war, Scott Sheads examines the lengthy campaign in the Chesapeake Bay region, characterized by raids, skirmishes, and amphibious operations. Culminating in the dramatic bombardment of Fort McHenry that inspired the writing of the "Star-Spangled Banner", this new history brings these dramatic events of American history to life."
