Publisher Comments:

Andrew Jackson is best known as the president who created “Jacksonian democracy,” with its focus on manifest destiny and laissez-faire economics. But rarely are his accomplishments as a general highlighted. Jackson's effective use of spies in war time and of martial law in peace time sparked a debate about the curtailing of civil liberties in the name of national security that continues to this day. Most of all, Jackson was a great motivator who could, with a few carefully selected words and by his own brave example, turn around starved, deserting troops, convincing them to fight. With dramatic scenes of fierce battles and victories, Remini reveals here why Jackson's bold leadership as a general led to his election as President of the United States in 1828.
