Ken McGoogan, The Globe and Mail
…an authoritative and convincing work….A notable contribution to his growing body of work….In detailing the various battles…Zuehlke subjects his readers to a waterfall of information. And yet, as leaders perish and bodies pile up, Zuehlke emerges out of the mist to capture the ebb and flow, the constantly changing momentum of the war.” For Honour’s Sake “provides a broader, more provocative context than usual.
Quill & Quire
For Honour’s Sake is a rollicking and thoroughly enjoyable survey of the War of 1812. From casus belli to peace treaty, Mark Zuehlke brings his prodigious writing talent to the history of a war that was inconclusive for its US and UK belligerents, but enormously important for the future nation-state of Canada.
