Except WWII is a known win for the allies. There's no disputing that. 1812 is often considered a dual victory, or a tie, as both sides got what they wanted out of the war, and neither was really dominated militarily.
You don't see Americans being forced to serve in Britain's Navy anymore, do you?

Technically we meaning the US didn't lose. We didn't really win either though.
On the one hand, we managed to keep the US relevant as a nation, we made the British stop impressing our merchant sailors into military service against the French, and we took New Orleans, giving us another major port and control of the Mississippi River. On the other hand, we failed in virtually everything else we didn't conquer Canada, the British and Canadians burned Washington D.C. to the ground, etc. etc.

Think of the war of 1812 as the American revolutionary war sequel. :/ Basically British Aristocracy was no content with the new nation and tried their best to pretend it didn't happen by attacking our settlers from their Forts on our Western borders, enslaving our sailors forcing them into the Royal Limey Navy, and trying to tell us who the hell we could or could not trade with (mostly upholding the French embargo who they were at war with) . The US like the dumb aggressive shit it was, overreacted to the disrespect by threatening war with English unless some outrageous demands were met.
The war happened, some limeys died, some Americans died, the white house burned, no land was swapped.... but the Brits agreed to remove their Britfag forts, and the US got to be treated like a regular nation so yeah.

Also, the Americans were in talks with their only other democracy friend France on joining the war. The British tried to bully the Americans into keeping out, but it just sapped men we could've used in Europe
The 1812 war isn't very well known in Europe as it was overshadowed, and is just considered one of the smaller wars of the grander Napoleonic Wars
