This is a concise telling of a rather unknown entity that operated in the US beginning in the early years of the war. Many little interesting tidbits of history. A little too much focus on Wallace, FDR's vice president and not enough on the daily workings of the unit. The author covers a lot of territory and you are left wanting more depth in some areas. Fun and easy listen and a new perspective on Britin, our "friend"
While I enjoyed the "first part" of the book which familiarizes the reader with the main characters and their backgrounds, I found the "second part" the real joy. Well known cases with enough detail to make you comfortable with the issues and an unbiased approach to each character's role in the case. A really good listen for those interested in the Superme Court itself and, as an extra bonus, some familiar names come into play to give you an all around feel for the era and what is to come.
