Without a doubt the very best book I was able to read in 2012.
This emotional roller coaster of a read, kept me turning pages and wanting so much more from these historians and authors. The book is written with an unrelenting focus on the terrible events that lead up to and develop in the minds and lives of those involved.
You will not be able to put it down, I held it for two days straight, apologizing to the ones around me, for not paying attention to them but remaining engrossed in this superb historic work.
