    Shame

    The history was lacking and all the stories were the same. The only things that would change were the place of birth, death, and sometimes the places the people traveled. Leon Claire Metz seemed to have strongly dislike historians because in almost every chapter he down played the knowledge of historians. This book is NOT a must read but would serve well for fire starter.
