Very interesting, little known and important story beautifully told with great characters and narrative development.
Excellent history of the few in England who objected to fighting a war in France but too few for a great narrative. Some interesting characters and tales but thin. Still, informative and well written.
Great character development; puts you in their minds to see events as they saw them at the time. Sure, it is fiction but it doesn't feel like it. Well written and well researched.
Clear, balanced with strong narrative flow and character development. Asks the important questions and presents many possible answers.
Very dry. No narrative flow or character development. I gave up after 2 chapters. For an excellent book in this series, try Battle Cry of Freedom.
Interesting story that also provides great insight into the current president. He is an excellent reader and mimic. Great fun.
Well written, balanced account that details the events and reveals the thinking, blindspots and character of the decision makers. An easy listen that never drags.
Jonathon Spence is a brilliant historian. This book is a poor effort. There is no analysis or exploration of character.
