I have been fortunate enough to have read many of Mikes recommendations. I especially have enjoyed the works of both Donald Graves & Robert Malcomson (whom I have had the pleasure of meeting in person).
Here are a couple of others that may have been overlooked.

The Invasion of Canada 1812-1813, Pierre Burton

Flames Across the Border 1813-1814, Pierre Burton
