    • I really enjoyed this book. It acquainted me with what was really happening in our country during this early period in U.S. history.It shows that Andrew Jackson was a lot more than the boisterous country bumpkin of his general reputation. The detailed progressoutlined of the battle of New Orleans is riveting. This book has sparked me into getting the 3 volume history of Andrew Jackson by Remini. I need to know a lot more about this man who probably, as pointed out in the book, saved the U.S. and allowed it to become the large continent covering country it is today.
    • Having received most of my "education" about the War of 1812 back in high school on ONE day, and from Johnny Horton's song, "....in 1814 we took a little trip...and fought the bloody British in the town of New Orleans..." A humorous little ditty - lots of fun, but not really a great place to get a realistic look at that time in our history. Anyway, as I said, having received my education thusly, I was totally enthralled by this very griltty recounting of Jackson and his amazing victory over not only the British, but forces in the U.S. arrayed against him, his own fragile health, and the topography of New Orleans itself. This is not to be missed!
    • Along with Brian Kilmeade's other books "George Washington's Secret Six" and "Thomas Jefferson and the Tripoli Pirates", another outstanding, condensed, yet thorough work on an interesting piece of American history. A great companion book to HW Brands, " Andrew Jackson, His Life and Times."Along with Oreilly's "Killing" series, I anxiously await the arrival of his next book!Dr. Stanley E.

    • I enjoyed learning about this era in American history. I didn't realize the union was so weak after the American Revolution that we nearly lost our country back to the British. I finally understand the War of 1812. It was fun to learn how our national anthem fit into this story. I also learned what a wonderful man Andrew Jackson was - a true hero! I really appreciate how the New Orleans women's prayer vigil during the Battle of New Orleans is given credit for the miraculous victory. What a great American story!
    • THIS BIIK IS A GREAT READ, AND IS MORE LIKE A NOVEL THAN AN AMERICAN HISTORY BOOK. YOU HAVE OLE GEN ANDY JACKSON FRONT AND CENTER, DEFENDING NEW ORLEANS FROM THE BRITISH, WHO HE HATED WITH ALL HIS MIGHT, WITH A BAND OF BACKWOODSMEN, LOCAL VOLUNTEERS, AND PIRATES. I DIDNT REALIZE THAT THE BRITS, AFTER GETTING SOUNDLY DRUBED IN LA, SAILED EAST AND ATTACKED A SMALLER AMERICAN FORT. THE FACT THAT THE WAR OF 1812 WAS ALREADY OVER, AND A PEACE TREATY SIGNED BEFORE EITHER BATTLE IS JUST A SAD FACT OF HISTORY.
