Audible Editor Reviews

What differentiates this description of The Battle of Gettysburg from others is the fact that Frank Haskell, the author, was an officer in the Army of the Potomac. Haskell wrote this report days after the battle itself, and his observations are crisp and insightful.

Tom West's performance of this eyewitness account is not to be missed. He makes Haskell's account fluid and enrapturing. The listener will feel like he or she is standing next to Haskell in one of the most important moments of American history.

    "The battle of gettysburg"

    It was interesting to get the perspective of someone who was at the battle. The book was written a short time after the battle, and therefore only contains those events the author was witness to. Thus the lack of detail about the first day of the battle and the fighting on Culp's hill. The main problem I had with the book was the terrible sound quality of the recording though the narrative was quite interesting.

    "fantastic"

    This was written by a union captian who was at "the angle"; he lead the deail that counted the confederate dead after pickett's charge, and he was killed in action several months later.
