I was inspired by a discussion (yours?) on the Round Table to buy and read this book. I really enjoyed it. It lines up with the historical truth I've heard rather than the romanticized flights of fancy in several movies.
Glad to hear it! I like writing for the No Flying, No Tights website, but it's too bad they don't have a discussion function. So I'm especially happy to have discussion here.
Good post, Mark. Like you I'm really into Geary's work on these books. I really appreciate all of the research he puts into them
Thanks, Travis! It's fun writing these: they're much more formal (and usually longer) than my blog posts.
