Re reading material post of earlier: Read Young Henry. The ending skipped forward a lot I felt, not such a well-balanced book for me. Difficult I guess to not cover all the stuff we already know but still felt the last 20-50 pages not so good.
The ‘Sleepwalking into WW1’ book was almost the opposite. The level of detail was nearly overwhelming. The set was really close so felt like a wade through but enjoyed it and learned a lot.
Now reading the book below.
Not sure if I’ve seen the Ken Burns Doco or just feel that I’ve seen it and this case was referenced a lot during the Presidential primaries and since.
I was in New York in 1990-91 for 3 months so this, the Howard Beach racial incident and some of the others mentioned at the start of the book were still super present in the city at the time.
