Well-written history aimed at dispelling the half-truths, myths, errors and outright fabrications that have surrounded the famed Great Locomotive Chase. The book describes the background of the raid, provides a clear chronology of what happened on each day and reveals the existence of another locomotive (not mentioned by Andrews's pursuers) which should end the censure he has endured for apparent incaution. The author weaves the pertinent contemporary background material into a coherent story that accurately re-creates an historic and still thrilling story. With extensive notes and section of black and white photos. 354 pages with index.
