    Since it is the fifty year anniversary of this tragedy, and because I have read Deboraj Wile's good YA tretament, Kent State, and because I was reading Derf Backderf's fine comics history.I decided ot order this, for a straightforward and concise account of what hapened May 4 and the events leading up to the murders of four unarmed students and rhe injuring of nine others at Kent State University, as protests across the world aginst Nixon's acceleration of the Viet Nam War increased everywhere. A Since it is the fifty year anniversary of this tragedy, and because I have read Deboraj Wile's good YA tretament, Kent State, and because I was reading Derf Backderf's fine comics history.I decided ot order this, for a straightforward and concise account of what hapened May 4 and the events leading up to the murders of four unarmed students and rhe injuring of nine others at Kent State University, as protests across the world aginst Nixon's acceleration of the Viet Nam War increased everywhere. As youcan imagine, these killings created the largest student protest in history, where more (unarmed) students also got shot and killed or injured. And as with our BLM summer of 2020, there are many including Nixon and the mainstream media who sided with the National Guard and blamed the (unarmed) students, most of whom were shot at a distance of more than two football fields away while carrying their books to their next class. This book was researched and written by Carole Barbatos, a professor of Communications, and Laura Davis, a Professor of English who was a witnes to the shottings. It's a dispassionate chronicle of one sad time in American history. I used it as aguide to the factual account of evenst against which I read Wiles's and Derf's books. And to reflect on how people with guns continue to fire on unarmed people, some of them our children. And whether any of the murdered were "inncoent" seems hardly the point where killing is concerned, seems to me.

    And the rest of the story... As a Kent State 1976 graduate, the aftermath was everpresent in my college years, 1972-1976. This book is a very detailed scenario of the days leading up to and including May 4. this gave me a better and new perspective into this tragedy that I thought I knew well. The book presented the facts with much-supporting research. The authors were knowledgable and presented the topic in an unbiased way.
