    The president's son and daughter are abducted, and Detective Alex Cross is one of the first on the scene. But someone very high-up is using the FBI, Secret Service, and CIA to keep him off the case and in the dark. A deadly contagion in the water supply cripples half of the capital, and Alex discovers that someone may be about to unleash the most devastating attack the United States has ever experienced. As his window for solving both crimes narrows, Alex makes a desperate decision that goes against everything he believes....

    Story

    Here begins one of the most remarkable works of history ever fashioned. All the great battles are here, of course, from Bull Run through Shiloh, the Seven Days, Second Manassas to Antietam, and Perryville in the fall of 1862, but so are the smaller and often equally important engagements on both land and sea: Ball's Bluff, Fort Donelson, Pea Ridge, Island Ten, New Orleans, Monitor versus Merimac, and Stonewall Jackson's Valley Campaign, to mention only a few.

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Civil War to be better than the print version?

    Absolutely! I'm sure that the nuance of emotions could not rise off the printed page as well.


    What did you like best about this story?

    As a West Point graduate, I was educated deeply in the strategy and tactics involved in the war. What was not taught were the aspects of the personal idiosyncracies of the major personnel; the impacts on the civilian population nor the political interactions. This history filled in all the cracks.


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

    N/A


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

    Every moment was a garden of delight.


    Any additional comments?

    As this is a huge file, be prepared to sacrifice shelf space.

  • The Wild Blue: The Men and Boys Who Flew the B-24s Over Germany

    Story

    The very young men who flew the B24s over Germany in World War II against terrible odds were an exemplary band of brothers. In The Wild Blue, Stephen Ambrose recounts their extraordinary brand of heroism, skill, daring, and comradeship. Stephen Ambrose describes how the Army Air Forces recruited, trained, and chose those few who would undertake the most demanding and dangerous jobs in the war.

    jud says: "Terrific book."

    Story

    Just a snicker above boring. Passable as a testimonial to his old friend George but otherwise wouldn't inspire a B rated war movie.
