    I believe I am relatively familiar with history in general, and I'm usually not very excited about reading more about it. But this book was something else.

    Had I stopped reading after the first section, I’d have given this a five stars and whined that the Goodreads platform doesn’t aloe reviewers to go higher. But I didn’t stop. I kept reading, . . . until it got so bad, I found myself unable to do more than skim, and eventually, to just...
