The author clearly knows his subject, and has researched well, and included many useful snippets of interviews and first hand accounts; for that, it's a useful book.
Sadly, the layout, erratic timeline and sometimes I suspect, poor editing, let the side down. It is a complicated subject being covered here, but even so, the unfocussed nature of much of the book, makes it harder to read than it should be.
Still a good book, for the library of anyone interested in the subject, and ultimately worth its' modest price.
