Dark Tide: The Great Boston Molasses Flood of 1919

Dark Tide: The Great Boston Molasses Flood of 1919 - Stephen Puleo Unbelievable true story that happened in 1919 Boston North End. The book is crazy well written, giving detailed information about all the major players and breathing life into the "little people" as well. I also loved the interweaving of national and international historical context. So easy to read for nonfiction and the source material at the end is very impressive. The kind of book I'd like to write.

Another book for my 1919 fascination.
