The 1993 standoff between federal agents and Branch Davidians at Waco, Texas, was the most controversial law enforcement operation in modern American history. When it finally ended after 51 days, 4 federal agents and about 80 Branch Davidians, including 22 children, were dead. This book examines the controversy that surrounds the initial raid on the Branch Davidian center, the FBI strategy during the extended negotiations, the final plan to pump CS gas into the building, and the final, tragic fire that killed most of those inside.
"Because of the even-handed presentation, the title makes a strong and lasting impression. The writings are well chosen. A thoughtful and well-delineated addition."
