When the Toronto Star runs a year-end article on the events of 1812 and chooses to illustrate it online with a painting of Napoleon’s retreat from Russia you know that either they’ve embraced a more global view of the conflict or they’re really not very interested in it. Sigh.

  1. I’m from Australia (though originally from the UK) and I can only agree that interest in and knowledge of the past (history in other words) is sadly lacking, especially in what you might term the Westminster democracies. I;d be tempted to say it’s the very devil, but you probably do that on a regular basis. I enjoy your blog, please don’t stop 🙂
