    • 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.

    • This book made the Battle of New Orleans understandable. It is not a complete history of everything that happened, but it is a good story to read and easy to understand. It is the second book that I have read about this Battle, one was a novel, but had good facts. I know this one is not footnoted, but Kilmeade does list his sources and there are many of those. It was so interesting to read about Jackson himself. Some of that I already knew, but it did bring him to life in that time frame. My ancestors fought in this battle so that is why I was so interested in its history. I have also read Kilmeade's other books and find them very interesting.
    • 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.
    • 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 is among the top five history books I have ever read, and I like to read history. It has ample background to the battle without killing the reader with WAY too much information like so many history books. It almost read like an action novel. In fact, by the time I got to the battle I couldn't put it down! Like most Americans all I knew about the Battle of New Orleans was the old Johnny Horton song where the British ran off after being fired on a couple of times. I never had thought about the fact that the British soldiers were the survivors and victors over the Republican Army of Napoleon. They had beaten the best army in the world! In Louisiana they were facing a ragtag mix of frontiersmen, riverboat men, dock workers, prisoners, and even pirates. There is only one reason they were not demolished by the Brits--Andrew Jackson. Since I learned about the Trail of Tears I have never liked the man. He was a man of his times and had many flaws. After reading this book my opinion has changed completely. I still don't really like him, but I don't think there is a man on this earth that could have accomplished what he did in preparation and execution of this final chapter in the war. He was sick, had old wounds that troubled him, was hampered by lack of funding and had almost no trained soldiers to rely on. He accomplished the impossible, and with that he has my undying admiration and respect. He truly earned his nickname "Old Hickory." He was perhaps the best natural military leader in the history of this nation.
