    Throughout the Gulf War of 1991, unprecedented restrictions on the media’s access to the battlefield kept the true story of that brief, brutal conflict from being told. Now, after two years of intensive research, Rick Atkinson has written what will surely come to be recognized as the definitive chronicle of the war.

    Lyle says: "A very decent account of the gulf war"
    "Narrator needs a pronunciation guide"

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

    Unfortunately no. The narrator's inability to pronounce simple words correctly consistently detracted from the grand scale of the story. While some of these words were understandable (i.e. military jargon and Arabic words/names), others were just silly pronunciations of common English words. If someone familiar with the content "proof-listened" his recording, it certainly didn't show.
