Mrs. Lassley's Review
I am a self proclaimed lover of fiction. BUT this book will make you love nonfiction. Bill O'Reilly created a story that you want know the ending to but you are biting your nails for the ending. There are lots of historial photos to help you visualize the events. This is one of those books you must read!
