    It’s become fashionable among the liberal elite to downplay, deride, and even deny America’s greatness. The political correctness police insist that America is hated around the world for being too big, too powerful, too rich, too successful, too loud, too intrusive. And besides, it’s not nice to brag....

    In To Try Men's Souls, Newt Gingrich and William R. Forstchen cast a new light on the year 1776 .Valley Forge picks up the narrative a year after Washington’s triumphant surprise attack on Trenton, and much has changed since then. It’s the winter of 1777, and Washington’s battered, demoralized army retreats from Philadelphia.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Valley Forge to be better than the print version?

    The narration by William Durfis is very good as he makes the character's come to life with their own personalities. This alone makes the audio edition worth the listen.


    What other book might you compare Valley Forge to and why?

    New Gingrich has several historical/ fiction books available. The book's content is rooted in historical facts and of course the dialouge is fictional, but realistic.


    Have you listened to any of William Dufris and Callista Gingrich ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    William Dufris did a fantastic job in voice acting this book. Callista's voice was a welcomed edition, however it was inconsitent as she occasionally spoke for Martha Washington, while Durfis also spoke for the former First Lady.


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

    This is a 19 hour listen and I completed it over several days while traveling.
