Paul Vickery's "Jackson: The Iron-Willed Commander" is one book in the series of "The Generals". After reading the book on General Grant, I had really high expectations for "Jackson", and this book did not disappoint. I wasn't sure that the "Jackson" book would have the same type of whole life story as "Grant", but as soon as I opened up the book, I knew I was in for a treat. This book traces the entire life story of Andrew Jackson, from childhood in South Carolina, through his Presidency of the United States, and the legacy he left behind. What is interesting is that even though each of the books in this series have different authors, they all tell an interesting and thoughtful story of the life and career of each person they profile. "Jackson" includes so many interesting facts about the man who is known as a great military leader, and President, like that he chose to begin studying law at age 17! I loved this book, and will definitely recommend it to anyone who loves history. Great read!
