    Historical, in depth, while lacking in areasThis book is historical Michel clearly devoted himself to delivering McVeigh to the world My only criticism is the occasional lack of objectivity when it came to McVeigh s motive and plan McVeigh said he wanted to be caught and put to death by the state, yet he was upset, claiming that he didn t get a fair trial I don t understand how Michel, or anyone else, could accept both to be true Another area I found lacking journalistic objectivity is in M Historical, in depth, while lacking in areasThis book is historical Michel clearly devoted himself to delivering McVeigh to the world My only criticism is the occasional lack of objectivity when it came to McVeigh s motive and plan McVeigh said he wanted to be caught a...

    A biography of Timothy McVeigh starting from his birth, through to the Oklahoma City bombing and ending with him on death row This book does obviously cover the bombing of the federal building and its victims but this is not its primary focus Some may find it repulsive that McVeigh has had a book written that focuses primarily from his point ...
