SEBoiko Complains that Lt.Col. Oliver North went "a bit over the top in the God and Country area". How could one expect any less?

Shouldn't a "full record" contain the copyright and/or the publication date of the book? The bibliographies I wrote (and read) way back in the "good old days" had to contain that info. . . .

Interesting but improbable story line. A little bit over the top in the "God and Country" area.
