Shaara makes history come alive with his novel style of putting us inside the hearts and minds of all of his characters. The mixture of high level decision makers and frontline troops doing the dirty work made for a compelling presentation.
The narrators ability to consistently carry out so many different accents made it so by the end of the book, I knew who was talking without being told. He was also able to communicate emotion with subtle tone changes that made the listening even more riveting.
As good as this book was, I do belive it would be more fairly priced at one credit. Nevertheless, it now stands beside Jeff Shaara's father's work - Killer Angels - as one of my two favorite pieces about war and the warriors who fight them.
