Here, from New York Times bestselling author Thomas Fleming, is the gripping account of the critically important Battle of New Orleans, the last major clash of the War of 1812. On the banks of the Mississippi River, pirates, a future U.S. president, and vaunted British generals and admirals fight for sovereignty over the Gulf coast and the Mississippi River valley. The Americans, under the leadership of Andrew Jackson, may have been outgunned, Fleming writes, but their grit and determination - and, yes, luck - carried the day.
