These are men and the occasional woman who see themselves, and their neighbors generally see them, as good people doing the right thing. Yet they manage to object to violence in a meaningful way, and the more prickly ones sometimes often so. As you would expect, the largest part of each mini-biography is focused on the particular act or acts that eventually caused the principals to find themselves in this splendid volume.
The author writes as one knowledgeable in the application of violence, as reflected by the five recurring themes in each section: mindset, weapon familiarity, accuracy, power, and speed. The blend of these five constituents largely determines success, and the particular mix employed by each subject is the point of the book. There is much to learn here.
Great read! Almost as good as the first, but I do not mean to damn the sequel by faint praise. I would give Kirchner's first book six stars if a six star rating could be given. I look forward to yet another sequel of "Deadliest Men", and I hope the author is listening.
Each chapter is a succinct and academically well researched synopsis of the life and times of one particularly deadly individual (or pair of individuals, in a couple of cases). This book could be described as the perfect 15 minute read, one chapter at a time. Or, you can pick it up after supper and finish it as 3 AM, like I did both it and the "Deadliest Men" before it. Truly awe inspiring!
