Review of American Patriots by Rick Santorum

As a disclaimer, Rick Santorum’s political views have rarely existed in lock step with my view of the world.
But American Patriots by Rick Santorum doesn’t read like the overtly rightward leaning book that I would’ve expected given Mr. Santorum’s record as a member of Congress and Presidential candidate.
American Patriots is a brief handbook that distills the stories of some lesser known Revolutionary War heroes down to just a few pages each. This format provides a brief background on these figures, while wetting the readers’ appetite to study history and learn more about our history, which I gather was Santorum’s intent.
On this score, Santorum scores a big victory, my only complaint is that this book goes by entirely too quickly, and left me wanting more.
I received a free copy of this book from Tyndale House Publishers in exchange for an impartial review and the opinions expressed above are my own.

Welcome Back to Book Diplomacy

After several months away, i'm back!

In 2013, we're going to change the format of the blog just a little bit.

I've decided to focus primarily on history and political book reviews instead of analysis of the days headlines.

So with that said, hope everyone enjoys what they read.
