Excellent historic data and story
on January 8, 2014
This book reads as a novel - fast paced and illustrated. The book is a scholarly thesis with original research, yet is an easy and fascinating read about a little documented period in US history. Many plots are included which would make excellent action movies. There are laugh-out-loud twists of fate, fascinating characters, wild action scenes, adventures at sea in dead of night. There are murders, betrayals and successes. But which side are you rooting for? Where does it all fit into history? This is a must read. Most of this information will be completely new to you.
