    There will never be another Western writer like Louis L’Amour. A legendary author and indisputably the greatest storyteller in his genre of all time, L’Amour captivated millions of readers and has sold well over three hundred million copies of his works, which includes nearly ninety novels and countless short stories. Mistakes Can Kill You highlights an essential selection featuring nine of L’Amour’s earlier short stories, sometimes written under the pen name Jim Mayo, that exemplify the rugged morality of the best Western writing.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Anyone would enjoy this if the reader had at least paused a bit between sentences. The guy sounds like a computer.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Louis L'Amour again?

    Of course... I do love Louis L'Amour's writings but hate it when some hack destroys the flavor of a manuscript.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Pausing between sentences would be first. Adding some verbal feeling to the storyline would have made this a good audio book.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Anger! This would have been enjoyable but the reader sabatoged the feeling of the story. What a waste!


    Any additional comments?

    Don't wast your money on this. Sounds like a computer read the book! With a different reader, I would buy again.

  • The Gestapo: A History of Horror

    From 1933 to 1945, the Gestapo was Nazi Germany's chief instrument of counter-espionage, political suppression, and terror. Jacques Delarue, a saboteur arrested by the Nazis in occupied France, chronicles how the land of Beethoven elevated sadism to a fine art. The Gestapo: A History of Horror draws upon Delarue's interviews with ex-Gestapo agents to deliver a multi-layered history of the force whose work included killing student resisters, establishing Aryan eugenic unions, and implementing the Final Solution.

    Story

    As adults, we like to believe there are no real monsters in the world, but evil is real. The Gestapo: A History of Horror, is a true account of real monsters and true evil. This is a well written manuscript with great narration. Not a book for children.

    While the Battle of Kursk has long captivated World War II aficionados, it has been unjustly overlooked by historians. Drawing on the masses of new information made available by the opening of the Russian military archives, Dennis E. Showalter at last corrects that error. This battle was the critical turning point on World War II's Eastern Front. In the aftermath of the Red Army's brutal repulse of the Germans at Stalingrad, the stakes could not have been higher.

    Story

    The first two hours and fifty minutes are a spread spectrum of political differences between Germany and Russia. The book is a sanitized analysis, rather than an in depth, enthralling story of the battle of Kursk. Except for the monotone delivery, there is no personality to the work.

    A stunning look at World War II from the other side.... From the turret of a German tank, Colonel Hans von Luck commanded Rommel's 7th and then 21st Panzer Division. El Alamein, Kasserine Pass, Poland, Belgium, Normandy on D-Day, the disastrous Russian front - von Luck fought there with some of the best soldiers in the world. German soldiers. Awarded the German Cross in Gold and the Knight's Cross, von Luck writes as an officer and a gentleman.

    Battle: The Story of the Bulge, John Toland's first work of military history, recounts the saga of beleaguered American troops as they resisted Hitler's deadly counter offensive in World War II's Battle of the Bulge - and turned it into an Allied victory. It is a gripping work, painstakingly researched and imbued with such vivid detail that listeners will feel as though they themselves witnessed these events. This is a book not to be missed by anyone interested in this tumultuous era of our world's history.

    This work is not only well done but it is a moving account of life and death. War is hell and I truly doubt that there were many atheists in the foxholes during these terrible days. While I did enjoy the stories, I found that evil is real, and only God, and good people can stop true evil.

    Since its publication in 1960, William L. Shirer’s monumental study of Hitler’s German empire has been widely acclaimed as the definitive record of the 20th century’s blackest hours. The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich offers an unparalleled and thrillingly told examination of how Adolf Hitler nearly succeeded in conquering the world. With millions of copies in print around the globe, it has attained the status of a vital and enduring classic.

    Jerome Corsi's newest opus, No Greater Valor, examines the Siege of Bastogne - one of the most heroic victories of WWII - with a focus on the surprising faith of the Americans who fought there. In December of 1944, an outmanned, outgunned, and surrounded US force fought Hitler's overwhelming Panzer divisions to a miraculous standstill at Bastogne. The underdogs had saved the war for the Allies. It was nothing short of miraculous.

    It's not too late to discover the lost gospel of Jesus and begin to live by it, to change our direction, to once again become people of the way. We could, with humility, embody compassion and justice. We could so completely trust God that we dare to share what we have with those in need, love those who hate us, bless those who curse us.

    At first, all seemed well BUT suddenly, halfway through, the author (for no necessary nor literary reason) begins using derogatory phrases like, "What the hell..., eat shit..., and so on. This denigration is an obvious attempt by the author to say, "I am free." Well, so am I, and I won't support such corruption in an alleged "Godly Essay.".

    A Great Work while listening there is no indication of what book, chapter, or verse you are hearing.!? This is a very large work and most folks would like to know what part they are hearing. I have this in the leather bound book and the kindle but it is impossible to follow along with the audio format.

    This production makes one giant assumption. The reader / listener is gullible. Zukav assumes that you, the customer, will grant him authority to preach his "message". Blind faith in Zukav is the only way you or I might enjoy this "message". Sorry but, No Thank You....
