Ratings and Reviews
A Great Book
It is a very accurate and awesome book. This book tells everything about the war of 1812. Since I knew nothing about the war of 1812, I can't say that this book is not missing any data. This book puts it in the Canadian/UK perspective.
Terrific graphic novel
This graphic novel is great. I love the background music that constantly keeps changing to reflect the mood of the story. This is exactly how a digital graphic novel should be done.
Not sure why anyone would give this a lesser rating. A FREE app that is timely, thoughtful and artistic.
