The Iroquois in the War of 1812 proves that, in fact, the Six Nations involvement was too significant to ignore.Benn explores this involvement by focusing on Iroquois diplomatic, military, and cultural history during the conflict. He looks at the Iroquois attempts to stay out of the war, their entry into hostilities, their modes of warfare, the roles they played in different campaigns, their relationships with their allies, and the effects that the war had on their society.

He also details the military and diplomatic strength of the Iroquois during the conflict, despite the serious tensions that plagued their communities.This account reveals how the British benefited more than the Americans from the contributions of their Iroquois allies, and underscores how important the Six Nations were to the successful defence of Canada.

It will appeal to general readers in both Canada and the United States and will have relevance for students and scholars of military, colonial, and Native history.
