    Story
    (29)

    Anthony Pitch's thrilling account of the Lincoln conspiracy and its aftermath transcends the mere facts of that awful night during which dashing actor John Wilkes Booth shot Lincoln in the head and would-be assassin Lewis Payne butchered Secretary of State William Seward in the bed of his own home. "They Have Killed Papa Dead!" transports the listener to one of the most breathtaking moments in history, and reveals much that is new about the stories, passions, and times of those who shaped this great tragedy.

    Tad Davis says: "Wonderful"
    "Inspirational, Moving Story"

    Story
    Would you listen to 'They Have Killed Papa Dead!' again? Why?

    This is worth listening to multiple times as there is so much to this story that you cannot absorb it all at once.


    What does Milton Bagby bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I have read the book than listened to it and listening to it brought all the characters and the flavor of the time to life. You become part of the story rather than an outsider looking in


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Lincoln started to understand how he needed to use his Presidency to change history.


    Any additional comments?

    This makes book makes a history lesson come alive!

    From the streets of Iraq to the mountaintops of Afghanistan and to the third floor of Osama Bin Laden's compound, operator Mark Owen of the U.S. Naval Special Warfare Development Group - commonly known as SEAL Team Six - has been a part of some of the most memorable special operations in history, as well as countless missions that never made headlines. No Easy Day puts listeners alongside Owen and the other handpicked members of the 24-man team as they train for the biggest mission of their lives.

    Darwin8u says: "Gripping, first-hand narrative of Op Neptune Spear"
