Loving this cat's reach and depth. Why do all the brits write such (more gooderer) u. s. / Americah histories than American authors?

The book begins in the darkest days of the Great Depression, at one of the lowest points in this country's past. Manchester brings alive the struggle of Americans through an economic collapse, a world war, and the Cold War.

Manchester is in a class of his own. He is an exceptionally talented researcher who writes brilliantly. His writing almost makes you feel that you are participating in the events he describes. His writing is never boring and often inspiring. He is a prodigous researcher and writer. I have read most of his works and all are excellent and worthwhile. I especially recommend 'Goodbye, Darkess', an autobigraphical account of his experience as a Marine in the Pacific in World War II. If you are going to read his other historical works, read Goodbye Darkness first. It will give you some very useful insights into the author and add context and texture to whatever else of his you are reading.
