I promised a long review and I did in fact post one with Amazon. Sadly the original was rejected because I said things like, “Shit happens.” I don’t know what made me think that would fly with them. So I banged out a shorter one because I was pissed with them. Freedom of speech and all that.
Ha ha Kevin, we must all be polite and nice for fear of offending SOMEONE who is waiting to be offended, you know. Anyway, nice review, balanced and thoughtful. Much appreciated. Noted your points about Casca and Custer and the shortness of the battle, but I went deep into the battle itself and found it was, well, short.
I also read that the battle for the Alamo was only 30 minutes long once the Mexicans got their arses in gear yet so much has been written about it that its assumed a huge mantle that is proportionately longer than it was. Fame, notoriety and so forth. Anyway, onto the Viking and lots of fights and a bigger, longer story line.
