"The only new title that knocked my socks off is "Tempest at Dawn" by James D. Best, published in 2009. I've finished it and plan to read it again, after a spell. There is a lot there to absorb and enjoy. I know I missed many things as I read it quickly - it's a compelling read - and the second time I plan to read more slowly and savor each character, and there are many historic figures involved. I also began looking up his other works and maybe add a few of them to my collection.
The book brings our founders to life with great writing, historic accuracy and amazing wit."
