I've seen the movie before, but so long ago I had only vague memories of it.  But the plot was pretty obvious, and that didn't matter.  Still a very disturbing, well written book.

Patriotic Fire: Andrew Jackson and Jean Laffite at the Battle of New Orleans, by Winston Groom

The stuff of history & legend, as the author puts it, and as an American extremely entertaining.  A good companion piece to follow up the two revolutionary era books I read recently, one on Madison and the other 1776.
