Book Review – Badass: Ultimate Deathmatch

Badass: Ultimate Deathmatch: Skull-Crushing True Stories of the Most Hardcore Duels, Showdowns, Fistfights, Last Stands, Suicide Charges, and Military Engagements of All TimeBadass: Ultimate Deathmatch: Skull-Crushing True Stories of the Most Hardcore Duels, Showdowns, Fistfights, Last Stands, Suicide Charges, and Military Engagements of All Time by Ben Thompson

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

For those of you who have read and liked the previous Badass books, you will not be disappointed with this one.

Thompson brings the same testosterone fuel he had from his two previous books to this one, now focusing on some of the great battles in history. Thompson does not limit himself to the big epic wars either, but looks to some of the smaller scale fights as well. Along side wars like the 100 Year War and the Punic Wars are specific battles like Gettysburg and Rorke’s Drift.

I cannot verify the historical accuracy of the events as Thompson tells them. But, I am intrigued enough by what I read to seek further information about the events he relates, if only to seek clarification. But, Thompson’s unique style definitely pulls you into the story and does not let go.
