He is not just a name anymore.

Everyone knows his name, but do you know anything more than the most trivial fact about this man? The author did a great job of giving the historical backdrop and various factors that contributed to the most notorious traitor since Judas Iscariot. He accomplishes this without absolving his treason or belittling it. Excellent treatment.

Narrator was first class.
