Two of the land campaigns of the War of 1812 furnish the setting for this novel. "It is chiefly the story of the Ohio country and Michigan Territory, and the campaigns of the Western Army against the British at Detroit--and across the river at Sandwich in Canada- -and also at Frenchtown. Both attempts by the Americans resulted in disaster--disaster at Detroit because of the faint-heartedness (or worse) of the commanding officer, General Hull; at Frenchtown because of sheer carelessness and ignorance."
