    "please finish the Starbuck Chronicles"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I really love these books and hope that Cornwell gets around to finishing the story. I realise that the money was in writing the Sharpe books another favorite of mine but that wasa while back and there is such a rich backdrop in the American Civil war for Nate to be involved in.

    The battle of Antietam

    "Shame it is the last book, excellent series"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Bloody Ground to be better than the print version?

    Not read the printed version


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Bloody Ground?

    The final battle described so well as usual by Mr Cornwell, just wish I had a map to hand


    What about Andrew Cullum’s performance did you like?

    Listening to the first book in the series I worried about Andrew and the accents, he was a little inconsistent, but as the series has progressed he got into it and brought the characters alive. I would now seek him out as a narrator, it was a pleasure to listen to him.


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

    I prefer to enjoy a good book such as this over a period of time although you want to listen to a whole chapter at one sitting


    Any additional comments?

    Being a long standing fan of Bernard Cornwell and his English historical fiction I was not sure how he would "travel" to America. However the evident extent of his research and his own "take" on historical fact shines through in this series to make it hugely entertaining.
