Hell Riders is one of those books you can't help relaying facts and passages from to your friends and family. Everyone has heard of the Charge of the Light Brigade, but this book explains in detail, that is never boring, why the charge took place. The charge itself isn't described until well into the book, but the reader doesn't feel as if he's been kept waiting. When Terry Brighton does descirbe the fateful charge the colour with he recreates the scene is awe-inspiring.
Probably the most memorable book I've ever read, relegating Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas to number two. See, you don't have to be a history buff to love this amazing book.
