I'm sure there's a good movie script in there. The story also reminds me of a few modern sieges that have gone over the top - the Symbionese Liberation Army siege in the mid 1970's and the MOVE incident in Philadelphia in 1985. That last one burnt down a whole neighborhood.

THE Mad Trapper of Rat River has a couple of movies about him. He had a well planned log cabin bunker and they had 20Lbs of dynamite to get him out. Charles Bronson and Lee Marvin were in "Death Hunt".

Appears the site is changing the link, must not like parentheses. Need to copy and paste the text.

Sixty isn't elderly.

Ironic that it took place in Defiance, Ohio.
