"… the definitive analysis of the battle of Chippawa. Donald Graves establishes its historical background, describes the opposing armies, brings them into battle, and assesses the results, without wasting a word yet his account of the battle combines high colour and exact detail. You find yourself alternately in the generals’ boots and the privates’ brogans, in all the smoke, shock and uproar of a short-range, stand-up fire fight."

- John Elting, author of Swords Around a Throne: Napoleon’s Grande Armee
