Not into History, but LOVE this!
5 years ago
I’m an engineer/programmer, and as such, history isn’t usually my thing. But this is AWESOME! It’s the kind of brutal, honest history that you don’t find in textbooks. It’s fascinating and engaging. Dan combines information from many sources to try to distill what really happened, and he details the sources and describes the motivations behind the authors. So you can decide for yourself whether to try to get your own understanding from the author, or accept Dan’s interpretation based on multiple inputs. The way Dan creates suspense is incredible. At first I almost couldn’t stand it, because it took so long to get to the juicy part. But once I chilled out, I realized I absolutely love the suspense.
THIS is how history should be taught.
Thank you Dan!
Now… off to give Dan some money on his website...
