It is an excellent naval history of World War I.
Winston Churchill because of his interaction with naval officers.
Battle of Jutland
This is not a short work but like all of Massie's books, it is very thorough and very well done.
Liked the narrator of volume one better but still a good listen.
Plan to listen to the next book in series.
Simon Vance did a wonderful job of bringing the characters to life. Thomas Cromwell is a very fascinating character in historical works and even more so here in fiction. Henry VIII comes off as a bit distracted and befuddled. I have read many non-fiction works on the Tudor period and Mantel does a pretty good job of staying within the historical context while weaving an intersting tale.
Very enjoyable listen.
Yes. I have read the book and seen the movie many times but it was worth listening too, as well. Easy to follow and nicely told story.
It provides more insights to character than the movie.
Good job of providing different voices and nice job of building excitement in key places.
This was a well-researched and interesting portrayal of a fascinating family in Renaissance Italy.
I enjoyed the insight into the inner workings of the Holy See during the Renaissance.
No. Interesting listen.
I have read other books by Hibbert and this was among the best efforts.
Historically accurate while providing an interesting story.
I enjoyed the Renaissance popes the most of all the stories.
Since there are many popes being covered in the book, it is easy to listen to over several periods of time.
Very true to the author's intent from the foreward.
