The 1838 Mormon War in Missouri Press Reviews

This is a thoughtful and well-documented study of an aspect of American history that has often been obscured by partisanship. . . . Happily, the climate of opinion now supports the efforts of scholars like LeSueur to render an honest and full account of a lamentable episode in Missouri's history. --Missouri Historical Review Eminently readable and meticulously researched, The 1838 Mormon War in Missouri combines first-rate scholarship with a vigorous prose too often lacking in historical writing. --Quarterly West As a result of thoroughgoing research and the meticulous use of sources, LeSueur has written a well-documented account of the Mormon War in Missouri that is, as a history should be, both engrossing and educational. Although many of the tragic occurrences he describes are not new to historians of the conflict, the author provides a broader and deeper understanding of the series of events than hitherto available. --Journal of the Early Republic While much has been written on the Mormon War in past decades, Stephen C. LeSueur takes a fresh and much-needed new look. Writing clear, straightforward prose, LeSueur has produced a thorough and thoughtful study that makes several important contributions. . . . This work is unquestionably the best book written on the subject. --Western Historical Quarterly From Danite oaths to extermination orders, this book succinctly reveals what really happened between the Mormons and the Missourians. Thoroughly researched and precisely written, it fills one of the biggest gaps in Mormon history. --Valeen Tippetts Avery, President, Mormon History Association Eminently readable and meticulously researched, The 1838 Mormon War in Missouri combines first-rate scholarship with a vigorous prose too often lacking in historical writing. --Quarterly West This is a thoughtful and well-documented study of an aspect of American history that has often been obscured by partisanship. . . .
