Captain Crow, I understand how the narrative is important, but I think (for a history book anyway) that knowing where the author got the information is just as or more important. That way if you do see what you believe is an error you can go see what the orginal source was and then evaluate for yourself whether the author was wrong in his interpretation based on the data he used. Maybe that takes some of the fun out of the reading, but I'm more of an analytical kind of guy. Regards!
