Author Langguth writes superbly about many Americans who played such an important part in the War of 1812: James and Dolley Madison, Andrew Jackson, Isaac Hull, Oliver Hazard Perry and uses their stories, and that of several others to recount the history of a war too little understood by Americans today. Much as he did with "Patriots, Men Who Started the Revolution", A. J. Langguth tells an exciting saga of historic events and the men who shaped them.
