Atkinson ? I dunno... I read one of his books once and once was enough . The man cannot write, which is understandable when you consider he was a senior editor for The Washington Post ( "Washington Daily Worker" ) . Editor Ben Bradlee couldn't write either, as evidenced by his atrocious book on JFK .
They say history is written by the victors but in the Atkinson case, it is written by illiterate leftists .
