    1. Provides a really solid narrative through the use of documents Many history books sort of tell you what s what and expect you to believe the truth, but this one just gives you bits and pieces from the people that experienced it and wants you to put together the puzzle Makes for a richer, personal, and nuanced understanding of a really interesting event in history.
