Editorial Reviews

Review

Still the best account available of the two key battles of the War of 1812... brings the 1814 battles around Washington and Baltimore to life, making them seem terrifying and critical, as they must have seemed to Marylanders at the time.

(Baltimore City Paper)

One of the very best books on the War of 1812 ever written.

(Blaine Taylor Captain's Locker)

This reissue of The Dawn's Early Light celebrates the bicentennial of the Battle of Baltimore. Scott S. Sheads, a National Park Service ranger and specialist on the event, introduces the book, which will remain a popular favorite for years to come.

(Lone Star Book Review)

Compelling and often riveting, The Dawn’s Early Light employs a journalistic style that imparts facts while retaining a sense of sensationalism and dramatic color.

(Dave Burford H-War, H-Net Reviews)

About the Author

Walter Lord (1917–2002) was an American author best known for his documentary-style nonfiction account A Night to Remember, about the sinking of the RMS Titanic. Scott S. Sheads is a National Park Service Ranger/Historian at Fort McHenry.


More About the Author

Walter Lord's A Night to Remember is a minute-by-minute account of the Titanic's final hours. Lord wrote 12 books, honing an eye-witness approach to history whether it was Japan's attack on Pearl Harbor (Day of Infamy) or the defense of the Alamo (A Time to Stand) or the Battle of Midway (Incredible Victory). In The Way It Was, he tells his own story, about his life and books.
