Over all the narrarator is very good. The book is pretty good. You can see that the author tries to be impartial for most of the information on Forrest during the war but he is dishonest in the information he gives about Fort Pillow and camps out on the subject. He rides it in the second half of the book and makes the statement that Forrest was a killer several times. Pretty good but bias.
The author writes a lot of assumptions into this and a lot of his opinion about the people that founded this country and most of it is negative, unfounded and plain stupid. The person reading this narrative did real well. There is still some good content in this book and worth listening too. You just have to spit out a lot of seeds.
The book just didn't do Lee justice. Short on information, the narration seemed bored. His book on StoneWall Jackson was much better.
