~ Yer Cheatin' Heart ~

The already tarnished reputation of historian Stephen Ambrose has taken another hit. The plagiarism charge eight years ago put me off taking any of his books seriously. The apparently accidental discovery that he fabricated dozens of interviews with Dwight Eisenhower is therefore sad, but not particularly surprising. I think it'll eventually come to light he was a great writer of historical fiction who sold them, incorrectly labeled, in the history section.
