    The frontiersmen were a remarkable breed of men. They were often rough and illiterate, sometimes brutal and vicious, often seeking an escape in the wilderness of mid-America from crimes committed back east. In the beautiful but deadly country which would one day come to be known as West Virginia, Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, and Illinois, more often than not they left their bones to bleach beside forest paths or on the banks of the Ohio River.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Would reccomend. I like this period of American history and this gives a lot of details you don't get in history books. Certainly dramatized but after doing some fact checking it appears to closely follow actual events.

  • The USS Flier: Death and Survival on a World War II Submarine

    The fate of the USS Flier is one of the most astonishing stories of the Second World War. On August 13, 1944, the submarine struck a mine and sank to the bottom of the Sulu Sea in less than one minute, leaving only 14 of its crew of 86 hands alive. After enduring 18 hours in the water, eight remaining survivors swam to a remote island controlled by the Japanese. Deep behind enemy lines and without food or drinking water, the crewmen realized that their struggle for survival had just begun.

    Story
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The narrator


    Would you recommend The USS Flier to your friends? Why or why not?

    Would reccomend only to die hard military history buffs


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Voice was to monotone with little inflection or emphasis on words or phrases.


    Could you see The USS Flier being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Not without extensive rewriting.


    Any additional comments?

    Interesting but dry.
