Have not read the print version. But the audio was pretty good. At times really having to concentrate on the narration. But overall a superb performance.
The telling of the riots and protests and general unrest in 1919. This even leading to mail bombs sent to judges and other elected officials, including the bombing of the home of the Attorney General of the US, who lived directly accross the street from FDR who was Assistant Sec. of War at the time.
Calvin Coolidge, he held more different elected offices then any other president in US history.
Neither. As a lover of history, it filled in some of the more detailed portions of that era that I was not totally aware of.
Overall this book is so intriguing and why I think books don't need to be made up to be as thrilling as real history. I enjoyed the details of the campaigns and lives of more then just those 6 men. I think it is interesting to make the comparisons between the protests and unrest of 1918-1919 to what we saw in 2011 with the occupy wall street protests. The unrest of the early 20th centry was much more widespread, but the socialist/anti-capitalist narrative of the two eras was/is pretty much the same.
