Although there are detailed accounts of various aspects of British operations against Washington and Baltimore in the summer of 1814, Terror on the Chesapeake is the most comprehensive examination of the entire campaign yet seen, and in a number of instances provides the best available account of some often overlooked aspects of campaign, such as treatment of the Battle of North Point. The book provides a great deal of useful information on organization and troop movements, and is very well provided with maps.
