“Jackson The Iron-Willed Commander”

“Jackson The Iron-Willed Commander” by Paul S. Vickery is a very informative and enjoyable read.

I have never read a biography of Jackson before, and found this one to quite interesting. It starts from Jackson’s difficult childhood and continues through his military and political careers.

Jackson is neither vilified nor deified in this book, which I found refreshing. It is well documented and includes much from the cultural, social, and political climate of the day. Putting Jackson’s decision in those contexts gives a clearer picture by which the reader can decide for himself what to make of the action.

What is made clear is the character of the man and the love he had for his God, his wife, and his country.

I would recommend this book to any serious student of history.   

Thomas Nelson provides a free copy of these books for review through their “Booksneeze” Program www.booksneeze.com ; however, I am not required to give a positive review of the book.
