Summary
A biography of Major General Sir Isaac Brock, describing his life, career, and legacy, particularly in the Canadas, and the context within which he lived. An unlikely hero of the War of 1812, he was admired by his American foes almost as much as by his own people. Even more striking was how a British general whose military role in that two-and-a-half-year war lasted less than five months became its best known hero, and one revered far and wide
