Hi, I just finished Charlie Wilson's War. I quite enjoyed it and learning about a period of history that we didn't cover in school (not that I liked History then.) Several references were made to the Iran Contra affair. I have vague memories of news reports, but I was too young then to appreciate what was going on.
I checked out Amazon and they reviews of the books mentioned there were not inspiring. I'm not a scholar. I don't need footnotes up the yin-yang or a dry recital of facts. Howver, I do favor historical accuracy over an author with a specific agenda.
So have you read a good book on that topic to recommend? I appreciate your help!
Regardless of what book you read on this subject, political bias will be present. I recommend you get a copy of the Iran-Contra report by Walsh and use it as a reference, for a dry recital of the facts, as you read a more readable book.
