"Thanks to [the author's] steady research, we have as much knowledge and insight to these men and this time as is currently available. It all makes for a truly fascinating tale and one that really does not have a clean and satisfying end. However, thanks to the superb period photos and some great artwork, it does make for a gripping read ... it is a book that no enthusiast of the time should be without. It deserves a high recommendation." --Scott Van Aken, www.modelingmadness.com (July 2013)"This 80-page paperback is richly illustrated with period photos as well as artwork created by Mark Stacey and Johnny Shumate. The author profile the principals, details the gunfighters' techniques and covers lots more ground in this enthralling account of the famous shootout. Hobbyists who have been collecting recently released metal and plastic figures inspired inspired by the O.K. Corral will discover plenty of display and diorama ideas inside this compelling book." --Toy Soldier & Model Figure (October 2013)
