Captivating Story Engagingly Told
Reviewed in the United States on November 10, 2020
Everyone else, or most everyone else (those with eyes to see), has reported what a great book this is to read. As for the few sneering leftwing comments denigrating Mr Brands as merely a "popular" historian, all I can say is by that they must mean an historian who writes well? Some of my favorite historians are "popular," and I am a person who has taken deep dives into primary and secondary American history source material. It's what you do with such material that counts. And H. W. Brands counts. Everything he has written is stellar, especially so "Lone Star Nation." Five Stars all the way.
