One of the best opinions I've read; some of the detailed research gave additional insight otherwise not seen for the average history buff. The main draw back is that the editor was very poor. This information needs additional clarification for it to be widely read. Since our schools do not teach history anymore, this text is an excellent one for someone with 'an incomplete education'. Unfortunately, it is painstakingly difficult to read. But I reiterate, worthwhile.
