Maybe. Mr McLaren's pronunciation set my teeth on edge so badly that I had a hard time finishing this audiobook.
The Fall of Reach is very reminiscent of a number of books by David Drake, most notably the tone and characterizations from the "Hammer's Slammers" series and Redliners.
Almost anyone. His inflection is excellent, but the pronunciation of even the word "longsword" was irritating. Someone needs to tell him that the "w" is silent. This was one of his less egregious errors.
Not particularly. It wanted to capture the feeling of "Band of Brothers" and "Saving Private Ryan", but wasn't quite there. Not quite enough pathos.
