The University of Illinois Press' “The War of 1812” by Wayne State College Professor Donald Hickey offers a comprehensive and authoritative history of the War of 1812.
This hour on Focus, host Craig Cohen talks with Hickey about the 200th anniversary of the conflict, new information about British forces, American Indians and weapons used in battle.
