This is a wonderfully written and fantastically read book about something that could have been dryly intellectual. It is so worth the read just to find out where many of our common phrases actually came from. Robert Powell executes the dialog magnificently.
Full of great information but sounds like a lecture for military history class. Written on iPhone and app malfunctioned badly.
The intertwining perspective of all of the people involved gave a wonderfully entertaining yet insightful view of the attitudes of the times.
To discover the Lincoln is the only sitting president to actively take part in and be in danger during a war while he was in office..
The logical history based on diaries, newspapers, and meeting minutes. This is a fantastic view of life in 18th century. It is a must read for constitutional history buffs.
This is a great follow up to Zero Day. It will start fast and take you on a roller coaster ride with lots of curves and screams.
Very good beginning but be sure to get the next book in the series. There is a fabulous and compelling flow. Don't argue, it's only money!!
Scary, informative, scary
The historical background leading up to the present.
Yes, it scared the crap out of me. How this country's leadership has undermined the constitution and how congress has allowed it is remarkable.
This book is an unexpected page turner. If you are a reader of WWII histories this one is a must read. It gives not only the personal narrative with the historical background but covers the political views of post war Japan and America. Unlike Europe, where Nazi hunting is still being done, there was no group to argue when the war criminals in Japan were exonerated in the name of the Cold War. It is an unfair travesty that our soldiers can be used and abused and then forgotten by the very Government that they fought to protect. Buy it, read it, and enjoy it.
Great "read" enough facts to be historically correct and enough action and mystery to keep you wanting more. WWII is only a backdrop to the Chicago Detective's Beat. This is worth the time, money and emotion that it takes from you! Honest Drama leaving you wanting more. This is a must listen!!!
Spectacular work by a great historian and story teller. Explains and supports the mini-series of the same name. This is a must read for any WWII history buff.
