    The war of 1812 would either make America a global power sweeping all the way to the Pacific or break it into small pieces bound to mighty England. It was a second revolution of sorts to prove to the British that America had to be taken seriously. The principal players in this drama were James and Dolley Madison and Andrew and Rachel Jackson. Their courage and determination would shape America's destiny.

    Thomas says: "Couldn't stand the narrator"
    "Excellent History in Narrative Form"
    Overall

    In the tradition of Jeff Shara this narrative clutches on the key figures of the forgotten War of 1812 and presents the story in an entertaining manner. Through the figures of Winfield Scott, Andrew Jackson and James Madison help describe the events that occurred during this war. It is this conflict more than any other that made the United States a political power in world politics and through an entertaining narrative the story is told.
