Two more budget histories from Castle. Mackay's 1997 volume traces the life of Allan Pinkerton, a Scottish immigrant who left his trade as a cooper to start the nation's first private security and investigation business, which still exists today. He also was Lincoln's spymaster during the Civil War and had operatives placed throughout the South gathering intelligence. Wheeler's 1980 title covers the horrible World War II battle of Iwo Jima in grim detail from both the American and Japanese perspectives for a balanced portrait buttressed by numerous pix.
