Its pointless writing a long screed about Pearl Harbour and Little Big Horn. Most (all ?) of us know the backgrounds and that they were events which involved mistakes by various people. The possibility of deliberate cover-ups is well-known. I'm glad you resisted the temptation to mention JFK. I'm sure we will never know all the pertinent facts about any of these events. Its quite possible that people told lies and omitted important facts. The main issues are generally accepted. Oswald killed JFK. Japan attacked Pearl Harbour without declaring war within a reasonable time. FDR was warned by reliable sources that an attack was very likely. Little Big Horn ? I know the background and have visited the site. There would have been many many people with various agendas commenting immediately after the battle. The person most accountable was Custer.

Uh, actually, a majority of active JFK researchers doubt that Oswald shot Kennedy. I'm a published author on the JFK case and still maintain a heavily visited website on the case.

And, no, scholars do not agree that Custer was the "most accountable" for the Little Big Horn. Where in the world do you get that? Mainstream Custer scholarship has overwhelmingly rejected that canard. Did you just not believe my previous reply when I stated that the last several major Custer books have all exonerated him and placed the blame squarely on Reno and Benteen and that for decades now Custer scholarship has rejected the Grant-Reno Court of Inquiry version of the battle? Ok, go to Amazon, order the last several books written on the battle, and come back and tell me what you find.

Quote:None of which (IMO) assists in a review or discussion of a book about 'The Reason Lincoln Had To Die'.

Only if you make the erroneous assumptions that you have made about the cases I mentioned. You seem to have totally missed the point. Yes, NOW most Pearl Harbor scholars are willing to allow that FDR received warnings, etc., but for a long time that view was summarily dismissed by Pear Harbor scholars, as was the view that FDR withheld huge amounts of intel from Kimmel and Short. Those other research fields have outgrown their echo chamber phase, but the Lincoln assassination field has not--even though there are plenty of good scholars who reject the military commission's version.
