    The Napoleonic Wars had torn Europe apart, and the peace conference of 1814 was to be held in the continent's grandest city: Vienna. Everyone had an agenda in the postwar world, and spy networks, bitter hatreds, illicit affairs, and tangled alliances ensued.

    D. Littman says: "brings you into the whirl of the time"
    "Disappointing narrator"

    Would you listen to Vienna 1814 again? Why?

    This is a fine history, interesting and useful. It is wonderfully insightful for anyone interested in the Napoleonic Era.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Mel Foster?

    Sadly, Mr. Foster does not even know how to properly pronounce Viscount Castlereagh's name, which is both distracting and enevitably annoying as he is a key participant. Any reasonable narrator should be able to handle this responsibility.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    A fine tome mishandled by a poor narrator.
