The war of 1812 would either make America a global power sweeping all the way. Other characters also color the landscape, but the bulk of the story is told through the eyes of the five main characters. This use of alternating point of view helps tell a fuller, more complete story, which is another of the book's strengths.

From the author of the New York Times best-seller Dream West comes this vivid historical novel about the dawn of America and the personalities that shaped it. Only three short decades after the revolution that created the young republic, a deeply divided America would be drawn into war once again. The war of 1812 would either make America a global power sweeping all the way to the Pacific or break it into small pieces bound to mighty England. The principal actors in this drama were President James Madison and his beloved Dolley, General Andrew Jackson and his Rachel, and the young military talent Winfield Scott. From the White House, to the southern woodlands haunted by British-backed Indians, to the war's most celebrated battle in New Orleans, their courage and determination would shape America's destiny.

Our public schools (I have no information on the private sector here) are woefully inadequate on teaching this subject. The only things I knew from my history classes about this war were: It happened in 1812 [it actually lasted several years], Andrew Jackson became famous for leading a fight in New Orleans and winning it after the war was over [wrong], and they scorched the White House [a drastic understatement]. No one taught the reasons the war started. No one explained what it meant. Many years after college, I finally picked up a few more pieces of information, such as them kidnapping our seamen. However, I was still unhappy with the lack of integration with the rest of our history.
David Nevin finally explained it to me. He used a style similar to John Jake's Bicentennial series (The Bastard, The Rebels, etc.). In a fictional setting, he explored the motivations and character of historical personages, as well as the political realities of the time. The story is fairly well told and he keeps it interesting throughout. I would have liked it if he had paid a little more attention to the political and diplomatic side rather than focusing almost strictly the military side, but he sprinkled enough in to keep the overall picture coherent. Definitely worth a read. If you like this one, try Aztec for an even better historical fiction.

Great read....only wish it had been in larger type as my aging eyes can't read the small print for extended periods. The subject matter, time period, and great writing kept me turning the pages though!

I'm just going to keep this short and sweet: 1812 is a fabulous book! I read it over a year ago and I still rave about it to anyone who will listen!! My brother and I bought it as part of a gift for our father but he never got it because neither of us could put it down. We read it so many times the jacket is ruined. Whether you're a history buff, just someone who likes to read, or someone who wants to be reminded why they should be proud to be an American, you won't regret picking up this book. It is so down to earth, so real, and so vibrant you can't help but be moved by arguably the most important yet little remembered war in America's history, and the people who believed in America enough to win it against all odds. Beautiful book.

I read this book based on reviews describing the rich narrative on the war. I was disappointed. There could have been much more on how decisions were made; particularly in regards to the treaty that ended the conflict. The cringe factor is very high with ridiculous dialogue and unnecessary descriptions of arousal of "Jimmy" Madison by Dolly and other personal relationships and dialogue that did not seem credible. The build up to the battle of New Orleans was interminable relative to any other part of the book and still did not give a good account of what actually happened. I read to the end because this is a war that has not been deeply covered by historians but this was not a suitable alternative.

I was looking for a historic novel on the war of 1812. There is a precious little available. I ordered Nevin's book with the knowledge that his writing can tend to the salacious side. The beginning of the book certainly affirmed that fact. But once we moved away from Dolly Madison's urges and dug into the significant events of the historic period in our history, Nevin definitely delivered.
  • Mr.mclav
Wonderful book and very informative about early American historical situation at that period.
I rank this book ALMOST as good as The Killer Angels, and right up there with Gods and Generals and The Last Full Measure. Nevin did an excellent job of making a page-turner novel based on a segment of American history that I think most Americans don't know much about. I've lent the book out to friends who have also loved it.
