    Newt Gingrich and William R. Forstchen have turned their sharp eye for detail on the Revolutionary War. Their story follows three men with three very different roles to play in history: General George Washington, Thomas Paine, and Jonathan Van Dorn, a private in Washington's army. The action focuses on one of the most iconic events in American history: Washington crossing the Delaware.

    "Fair"
    Overall

    After enjoying the civil war and WWII series I was anxious to listen to this one. While the detail is great, the flash back device is over used and becomes distracting. The female character voice, done by Ms. Gingrich makes a good attempt, but is outshined by the male reader.

  • No Less Than Victory: A Novel of World War II

    Story

    After the success of the Normandy invasion, the Allied commanders are buoyantly confident that the war in Europe will be over in a matter of weeks, that Hitler and his battered army have no other option than surrender. But despite the advice of his best military minds, Hitler will hear no talk of defeat. In mid-December 1944, the Germans launch a desperate and ruthless counteroffensive in the Ardennes forest, utterly surprising the unprepared Americans who stand in their way.

    Greg says: "A Must for WWII aficionados! Best of the trilogy!"
    "Not the same energy"
    Overall

    Mr. Shaara again tells a great story with superb skill; however, it does not have the same energy and grip as the first two in the series. He moves away from the Airborne and other elite forces in tell the story of November 1944 through the end of the war. It would have been nice if they had again been included. Still a good read.
