    History for busy people. Listen to a concise history of World War One in just one hour. World War One brought with it the world’s first experience of Total War, involving all of the world’s great powers, polarized between the Triple Entente, led by Britain, France and Russia, and the Central Powers, dominated by Germany, Italy and Austria-Hungary. Around nine million men lost their lives in a conflict that introduced the horrors of trench warfare, machine guns, and toxic gas attacks.

    If you could sum up World War One: History in an Hour in three words, what would they be?

    Very well covered.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Character? This is not a character study.


    Have you listened to any of Jonathan Keeble’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    It is a good Audible History in an hour. It would not be a good film.


    Any additional comments?

    Crank the pod, pad or whatever up to 2X. Great way to get history fast.

    A deathbed confession and a long-hidden conspiracy are at the heart of a riveting historical mystery centered on the assassination of Abraham Lincoln. In March 1900, as former Congressman John Bingham of Ohio lies dying, he begins to tell a strange tale to his physician, Dr. Jamie Fraser. Bingham famously prosecuted eight members of John Wilkes Booth's plot to kill Lincoln. But during the 1865 trial, conspirator Mary Surratt divulged a secret so explosive it could shatter the republic.

    What disappointed you about The Lincoln Deception?

    The author is not a historian nor a notable writer.


    Would you ever listen to anything by David O. Stewart again?

    NO!


    Would you be willing to try another one of L. J. Ganser’s performances?

    Yes.


    What character would you cut from The Lincoln Deception?

    Lincoln


    Any additional comments?

    This little writer does all of the politically correct song and dances: glorifys blacks; denigrates Southern whites; attempts to justify the invasion of the peacable Southern Nation, The Confederate States of America.
