    The Civil War battle waged on September 17, 1862, at Antietam Creek, Maryland, was one of the bloodiest in the nation's history: On this single day, the battle claimed nearly 23,000 casualties. In Landscape Turned Red, the renowned historian Stephen Sears draws on a remarkable cache of diaries, dispatches, and letters to recreate the vivid drama of Antietam as experienced not only by its leaders but also by its soldiers, both Union and Confederate.

    "Reader issue"
    Overall

    This is a very good book, if you have a specialized interest in the civil war. However, the reader puts on obnoxious British and Southern accents when quoting respective characters in the story. Fortunately, this is a small part of the text, but distracting. One wonders if someone asks the readers to exaggerate distinction between characters to this end.

    In this second volume in Durrell's Alexandria Quartet, Darley, the reflective Englishman, receives from Balthazar, the pathologist, a mass of notes which attempts to explain what really happened between the tempestuous Justine, her husband Nessim, Clea the artist, and Pursewarden the writer.

    This is great literature. The reader is excellent when reading lines of English male characters. But any lines of women or Egyptians are so awful as to grate on the ears.

    An intriguing look behind the congenial facade of Franklin D. Roosevelt and Winston Churchill, this work reveals how each leader jealously guarded knowledge from the other in pursuit of separate national interests.

    I thought this book was extremely well researched and well read. Anyone with an interest in intelligence matters and the history of current intelligence services will find this rewarding.
