    This volume is dominated by the almost continual confrontation of great armies. For the fourth time, the Army of the Potomac (now under the control of Burnside) attempts to take Richmond, resulting in the bloodbath at Fredericksburg. Then Joe Hooker tries again, only to be repulsed at Chancellorsville as Stonewall Jackson turns his flank, a bitter victory for the South, paid for by the death of Lee's foremost lieutenant.

    This series is easily the best Civil War work out there. Foote is
    magnificent, giving more than just battle details, giving details about the politics, society, and personalities that make this war the defining moment of our nation. The narrator is magnificent. A must listen and well worth the hours (and I mean hours) of listening.

    For a thousand generations, the Jedi Knights brought peace and order to the Galactic Republic, aided by their connection to the mystical energy field known as the Force. But they were betrayed - and the entire galaxy has paid the price. It is the Age of the Empire. Now Emperor Palpatine, once Chancellor of the Republic and secretly a Sith follower of the dark side of the Force, has brought his own peace and order to the galaxy. Peace through brutal repression, and order through increasing control of his subjects’ lives.

    Story

    The book serves as the entry point into the new characters of Star Wars rebellion, Rebels on Disney. These are really engaging characters, ones we can relate to, and want to venture on with. Great finish and great villain! The narrator is fantastic especially in handling Herra and her very important voice. Wish there was a next story for all but especially older readers already there to listen to. This book actually made me care about the Star Wars universe again, which I didn't think possible.
