    It was the last-chance moment of the war. In January 2007, President George W. Bush announced a new strategy for Iraq. He called it "the surge". "Many listening tonight will ask why this effort will succeed when previous operations to secure Baghdad did not. Well, here are the differences," he told a skeptical nation. Among those listening were the young, optimistic Army infantry soldiers of the 2-16, the battalion nicknamed the Rangers.

    Candy says: "This book is amazing, but brutal"
    "good book"
    Overall

    i found this to be a good book not a great book, i finished it and am glad i did it is a story we all should hear.

    i would have perhaps enjoyed this more if driving across country late at night.

    Uhtred is a Saxon, cheated of his inheritance and adrift in a world of fire, sword, and treachery. He has to make a choice: whether to fight for the Vikings, who raised him, or for King Alfred the Great of Wessex, who dislikes him.

    Michele says: "Guilty Pleasure"
    "Excellent"
    Overall

    Bernard Cornwell is my favorite author, i have never been dissappointed with one of his books.
    he writes a series of book with a hero in a particular time period and i grow to part of the hero and share his adventures.
    if u enjoy action u should not try this book for u may be hooked for many years.

  • An Echo in the Bone: A Novel

    Jamie Fraser knows from his time-traveling wife Claire that, no matter how unlikely it seems, America will win the Revolutionary War. But that truth offers little solace, since Jamie realizes he might find himself pointing a weapon directly at his own son - a young officer in the British army. And Jamie isn't the only one with a tormented soul - for Claire may know who wins the conflict, but she certainly doesn't know whether or not her beloved Jamie survives.

    Charles says: "Read all of Gabaldon's stuff before this one"
    "save your money"
    Overall

    I enjoyed the writter earlier work and looked forward to each new addition.

    IMHO she has not improved with age

  • No Quarter: The Battle of the Crater, 1864

    Story

    With gripping and unforgettable depictions of battle and detailed character portraits of soldiers and statesmen, No Quarter compellingly re-creates in human scale an event epic in scope and mind-boggling in its cost of life. In using the Battle of the Crater as a lens through which to focus the political and social ramifications of the Civil War - particularly the racial tensions on both sides of the struggle - Richard Slotkin brings to listeners a fresh perspective on perhaps the most consequential period in American history.

    Ronald says: "very information"

    Overall

    A well written very informative book on a major period in the late war of Northern Aggression. A lot of research went into the work and for an battle account it doesnot get much better.

    Good writting and a good book.

    Patrick K. O'Donnell has made a career of uncovering the hidden history of World War II by tracking down and interviewing its most elite troops: the Rangers, Airborne, Marines, and First Special Service Force, forerunners to Americas's Special Forces.

    Sean says: "Vet accounts = 5 stars; Narrator = 1 star"
    "disappointing"
    Overall

    I was looking forward to this book, i am a fan of oral histories as well as WWII. This just missed the mark.

    In 1890, a man collapses near the Piazza della Santa Carita in Naples, Italy. Strangers manage to revive him, but he is unable to speak. Police carry him to the nearest hospital, where he is not admitted because he has no money or identification. Frantically trying to communicate, he scribbles notes in ancient Greek and German that would have told the world about a discovery of immense importance - if anyone had read them.

    Lórien says: "The best Kuzneski yet"
    "fun & exciting"
    Overall

    this is a very exciting booking, the writting is excellent and i really did enjoy the way it came together. Great writting in my opinion.
