I found this book too biased. No one who was that evil could have commanded the respect that Quantrill had from the Southerner sympathizers in Missouri.

Quantrill was a career criminal who preyed on both sides of the civil war. He pursued a path of theft, murder, and destruction. His followers included the James and the Younger brothers. This is an exciting description of the events that led to Quantrill’s pursuit and capture.

Very readable book about the life of William Clarke Quantrill. Great details about Quantrill and his raiders. I was very interested to learn that the raiders were based around Blue Springs, Missouri, which is where I grew up. How did I not know this?
