    Only four men in American history have been promoted to the five-star rank of Admiral of the Fleet: William Leahy, Ernest King, Chester Nimitz, and William Halsey. These four men were the best and the brightest the navy produced, and together they led the U.S. Navy to victory in World War II, establishing the United States as the world's greatest fleet. In The Admirals, award-winning historian Walter R. Borneman tells their story in full detail for the first time.

    Where does The Admirals rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is at the top of the list I have heard. It was nice to hear stories of naval history.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Admirals?

    The admirals response to the attack of Pearl Harbor.


    What about Brian Troxell’s performance did you like?

    The way he was able to show the different moods and expressions of the admirals was remarkable.


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

    How the admirals were different, but alike in so many ways. They had differents ideas of how to lead, but will be forever known as the best the Navy has seen.

    Listen "live" to one of the most iconic orators of all times in this packed-full collection of Martin Luther King Jr. speeches. King's rich and passionate style of delivery will transport you back to the era of the civil-rights movement, when King advocated non-violent resistance in the pursuit of equality and dignity not only for blacks but for all mankind. Seldom has any leader since inspired and captivated an audience worldwide and motivated a nation to action.

    David H says: "A Terrible Collection Overall -- Poorly Done"
    "Very inspirational!"
