The Battle of New Orleans, where Andrew Jackson’s misfit army of frontiersman, regulars, militiamen and pirates defeated a crack British force, has always held a place in the American imagination. Although it was fought after the peace had been made, it put an exclamation point on a war that was not entirely successful. It also made a hero of Old Hickory and put him on track for the presidency. “Andrew Jackson and the Miracle of New Orleans” by Brian Kilmeade recounts the battle at a breathtaking pace. “Killing England” by Bill O’Reilly treats our war for independence in a similar manner. In “The storm before the Storm”, popular podcaster Michael Duncan walks readers through the fall of the Roman Republic.
