    A masterful biography of the U.S. Army in the European Theater of Operations during World War II, Citizen Soldiers provides a compelling account of the extraordinary stories of ordinary men in their fight for democracy. From the high command on down to the enlisted men, Stephen E. Ambrose draws on hundreds of interviews and oral histories from men on both sides who were there.

    Jeremy says: "Required reading, excellent narration"

    Where does Citizen Soldiers rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Among the top five.I usually listen to books at set times of the day, on my way to work, home, travelling that sort of thing. I wanted to listen to this all the time.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story from both sides. Not a biased, or opinionated book. Well researched. Great stories and little pieces of history.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    It's too difficult to pick a favourite scene, the whole book is riveting.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Definitely and It was one of those books that I didn't want to end.


    Any additional comments?

    I read an article recently about some infamous singer who said, 'men are animals who enjoy killing each other'. Obviously he hasn't read this book. There are stories of some brutality to be sure, but what shines through is the ability of people (citizen soldiers) to address the situations with some compassion and a healthy dose of reality. Men and some women are thrust into war like it or not, It's how they handle the situation that matters.This book addresses those issues and some. The hardships, the suffering and the humanity of it all. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in WW2, or just how folk behave given an exceptional set of circumstances.
