Colonel David Fitz-Enz (Ret.) talked about his novel Redcoats' Revenge: An Alternate History of the War of 1812 (Potomac Books; November 30, 2008). In his book he conjectures on what could have happened had the British won a decisive battle of the War of 1812 in Plattsburgh, New York, on September 11, 1814, and then sent the Duke of Wellington to lead the British army against Major General Andrew Jackson. Colonel Fitz-Enz, an army officer for thirty years, presented the actual history of the battle at Plattsburgh in his book The Final Invasion: Plattsburgh, the War of 1812's Most Decisive Battle (Cooper Square Press; September 25, 2001), that was the recipient of the Distinguished Writing Prize from the Army Historical Foundation. The author used maps as he talked about the events of the war and his research into the British plans to continue the conflict. He responded to questions from members of the audience at Fort Ticonderoga in the afternoon of Sunday, October 4, 2009. close
