According to one reader, Ambush: The Real Story of Bonnie and Clyde, it “is Ted Hinton's account describing the early years and the facts leading up to the bloody end of two desperate criminals. Hinton speaks out as one of the six men who killed Bonnie and Clyde in a hailstorm of bullets without warning on the morning of May 23, 1934 near Gibsland, Louisiana. This book is well illustrated and provides several rare pictures. I recommend this book to readers.”
