    Only a year after its stunning victory at Talavera in July of 1809, Wellington's Peninsular Army, vastly outnumbered and its coffers empty, was on the brink of collapse. The Spanish government had fallen, the last Spanish armies had been crushed by the French, and all that was left were the peassants fighting the guerrilla, the "little war." But Wellington had one hope left.

    Great fun, lots of adventure, some history. I liked all of Bernard Cornwell Sharpe's books so much that I was deeply depressed when I finished the last one available at audible. More Please!

    In his #1 New York Times best seller, Bias, Emmy Award-winning journalist Bernard Goldberg created a national firestorm when he exposed the liberal biases of the so-called mainstream media. Now, in his new blockbuster, Goldberg goes even further. He not only takes on Big Journalism, but offers a twelve-step program to help the media elites overcome their addiction to bias.

    Overall

    Having heard all the flack Bernard Goldberg received from his critics about his book "Bias" I was interested in hearing his thoughts in his own words . The book kept me interested and explained why his opinion about the media is an important subject to explore. Many of the examples of media bias in the book I remember hearing or seeing myself at the time they were in the news, others were interesting in there absence from public view.
    I now wish "Bias" was also available on audible.

    Who's Looking Out for You? is a book that boldly confronts our worst fears and biggest problems in a post-9/11, post-corporate-meltdown world. Its sage, candid advice on regaining control and trust in these troubled times will resonate with the millions of readers and viewers who have come to believe in Bill O'Reilly as the man who speaks for them.

    Charles says: "Balancing The Reviews"
    "Get a life outside your own opinions!"
    Overall

    This really is not a 5 star book, (more like 3) but it is enjoyable. If you are an ideologue and offended by opinions other then your own go read Michael Moore or Ann Coulter and stop getting upset by books like this.

    It's 1809 and the powerful French juggernaut is sweeping across Spain. Lieutenant Sharpe is newly in command of the demoralized, distrustful men of the 95th Rifles. He must lead them to safety - and the only means of escape is a treacherous trek through the enemy-infested mountains of Spain.

    Here is one of those rare novels, the first in an epic series, that completely transports the listener to an unforgettable time and place in history. At Talavera in July of 1809, Captain Richard Sharpe, bold, professional, and ruthless, prepares to lead his men against the armies of Napoleon into what will be the bloodiest battle of the war.

    Nicholas Winn says: "Great and you don't have to have read the others"
