By Peter H. Ostrander on February 1, 2014
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
One of the weakest collections of individual stories ever. Most chapters lacked context, and made little sense. And what's up with Nelson perry - why so much for him? This book has no analysis, and becomes a waste of time. The war needs a good left/progressive historical accounting, not this weird jumble.

1 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Oluwaseyi Ogunjobi on December 28, 2011
Format: Paperback
Nice reading. The conclusion was just very true. It is true that "...the ideologues on the left and on the right are interchangeable". Ill recommend the book to anyone who likes history. Its not very academic, but very real.
