I enjoyed the first person remembrances by members of both armies. These remembrances were not limited to the commanders but also some of the lesser known players.
James Longstreet telling George Custer that "He'd better get back to his own lines". This occurred when Custer, acting on his own initiative, asked for the surrender of the Army of Northern Virginia.
The interaction between Custer and Longstreet was classic.
The end of "the war" by them that lived it.
Short book but it has a wealth of first person insights to the end of the Civil War. Well worth a listen.
Scalzi takes characters that we all remember and puts a new spin on them. Great Science Fiction and I think H Beam Piper would have enjoyed this story
Of course, the original Little Fuzzy but with more grit and body.
I've heard Wheaton narrate before. He does a great job on Fuzzy Nation.
People are people no matter how small.
Enjoyable read, bear in mind that Scalzi's retooling of Little Fuzzy is only the first part of this book. Part II is the original story by Piper.
Reformed made simpler... As in Reformed Theology for dummies.
Nothing stands out but the concepts are drilled down on to give the lay person a basis for understanding.
He is a good narrator for a dry subject. Not monotonous at all.
Oh no. A difficult subject and requires attention and rereading
Great book with a cast of characters that most of us in the US never hear about.
Washington, a Life. The detail into the acts during the Revolutionary War have similar details but are a bit of a mirror image of each other.
Gage is a good reader, not the best that I've heard from Audible but he does an adequate job.
When the Tories were evacuating New York City at the close of the war. The stories of who went where and why was fascinating. The stories of the escaped slaves who fought for the British was especially interesting.
A good read for a little know part of US history.
A good book if you are interested in the B characters in the pro-Union camp. The author writes very little about southerners and very little about happenings in the south. Bull Run gets about a page and a half but Elmer Ellsworth gets page after page. If you are looking for the vast scope of happenings in 1861 I would suggest you look elsewhere.
I was glad the book was over. It was interesting but narrow in scope.
