From the back cover:
"The battle of the Thames was the culmination of a bloody campaign that saw American forces repeatedly lock horns with the British and their Native American allies. This highly detailed and meticulously researched account of the 1812-13 conflict explores how the American victory at the Thames helped them to secure the Northwest Frontier, a crucial gain in the War of 1812. During the battle, the Americans employed an imaginative and unprecedented charge by Kentucky mounted riflemen against the British regular infantry and artillery. Among the combatants was a future US president (William Henry Harrison), a future vice-president (Richard M. Johnson), and the Native American leader Tecumseh. The stunning American victory would lead to a deterioration in Anglo-Native American relations, and a rapid acceleration in American settlement on the Northwest Frontier in the years that followed."
