(if you wish to purchase this book directly from the publisher just click the below button and follow the instructions - proceeds go to keeping Warof1812.ca up and running.  If you waiting for it to come out on Amazon.com, etc., the publisher does not distribute to them.  Get it before it is gone!)

René Chartrand has been amassing information on War of 1812 British and Canadian uniforms since the 1960s. While he has published numerous articles, papers, and small booklets on the subject, Mr Chartrand has never written a complete tome on the subject.  That is until now.  It is expected that this publication will quickly sell out and presently the publisher has no plans in reprinting it anytime in the near future.  It is expected that soon it will be available only in the re-sale market at many times its original price.
