First off, sound quality outstanding, the more books I listen to the more I realize this isn't always the case. The history itself is great. I love history and most of this was new information. Highly reccomend this book.
How it showed the French and Indian war led to the American revolution.
Narration was very compelling.
Not that type of subject.
A must listen for students of American history.
Montcalm, but I can't explain why.
I would have liked to, but it was too long. I listened to most of it on a very long drive.
This is a fascinating piece of history that most Americans know VERY little about. It is of particular interest to me because mush of it took place where I grew up, in upstate NY. The narrator mispronounces the name of my home town, Schenectady. It is not that hard to find out the correct way to pronounce it.
This covers a period of history that is touched on in biographies of George Washington and others. However, it is hard to get a perspective on the French & Indian War. You will get that here. However, you will have to concentrate at times and get through a lot of names, places, and numbers. I read lots of histories, and I seek out ones that are more enjoyable.
Yes. This is a great survey of an important part of history largely unknown to my generation.
It's sad that such an important time in our history can be presented in such a boring format. It doesn't help that the reader utilizes a painfully supercilious English accent.
