Summary
"Shortly before the United States declared war on Great Britain in June 1812, Congress came within two votes of declaring war on Napoleon Bonaparte's French empire. For six years, France and Britain had both seized American shipping. While common wisdom says that America was virtually an innocent in this matter, caught in the middle of the epic wars between Britain and France, Peter Hill's exhaustive research in the French archives has uncovered a far more complex and interesting history."--Jacket
