(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: A Place Called Waco (Hardcover)
I really enjoyed the read, having had an interest in the subject for some time.The author,himself a survivor of the massacre of the Branch Davidians by the U.S. government gave a surprisingly balanced view of the whole episode, considering his part in this tale.
I certainly found it revealing after official versions of what happened at Waco, which, at best were aimed at putting the Davidians in the position of religious loonies,drug addicts ,arms merchants,child beaters and molesters in an attempt to cover their own screwups,and mishandling of the whole sorry episode.
A classic case of 'the nail that sticks up, will be hammered down.People did not understand the Davidians,who did not conform to the norm. As often happens in these cases, a witch or warlock hunt ensued, to the disgrace of U.S.A. law enforcement agencies.
Whatever your view on what took place at Mount Carmel,the book is sure to be well worth a read
