    What made the experience of listening to Damn Few the most enjoyable?

    Denver takes the listener into the hearts and minds of the warriors giving an insight few that have never been in combat could ever understand. The tight relationship between men that had been so different in civilian life is stressed.


    What other book might you compare Damn Few to and why?

    Several other books look at the acts of war, but this one deals more with the men than their actual battles.


    Have you listened to any of Rorke Denver’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is my first by Denver, but will not be my last


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

    The ending was particularly moving, when a few visited Arlington. I have been there and understand.


    Any additional comments?

    To learn about the bravery of young Americans gives us hope for the future. On the evening news you hear about the youth that commit crimes and are failures. Fortunately the majority of our young men are like the ones in this story. The public needs to know about the ones that are the hope for our future.

    Millions of people have thrilled to best-selling authors Bill O'Reilly and historian Martin Dugard's Killing Kennedy and Killing Lincoln, works of nonfiction that have changed the way we view history. Now the anchor of The O'Reilly Factor details the events leading up to the murder of the most influential man in history: Jesus of Nazareth. Nearly 2,000 years after this beloved and controversial young revolutionary was brutally killed by Roman soldiers, more than 2.2 billion human beings attempt to follow his teachings and believe he is God.

  • Benjamin Franklin: An American Life

    Benjamin Franklin is the founding father who winks at us - an ambitious urban entrepreneur who rose up the social ladder, from leather-aproned shopkeeper to dining with kings. In best-selling author Walter Isaacson's vivid and witty full-scale biography, we discover why Franklin turns to us from history's stage with eyes that twinkle from behind his new-fangled spectacles. In Benjamin Franklin, Isaacson shows how Franklin defines both his own time and ours. The most interesting thing that Franklin invented, and continually reinvented, was himself.

    E. A. says: "A Master of Biography"
    "Althogh LONG, it kept my interest."
