What made the experience of listening to Soldat the most enjoyable?

This was an interesting look at a soldier who made it through the entire war and Russian captivity - and came home.

Cornwell's worst book

What would have made The Fort better?

An ending.

What does Robin Bowerman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Outstanding reading - really brought many different characters to life.

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

Disappointment - Cornwell is one of the best authors ever, but this is clearly his worst book. A rambling story without an ending. Unlike all his other books.

Any additional comments?

Skip the Fort and listen to the Richard Sharpe series instead.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would highly recommend this book as it tackles a very important yet uncomfortable topic for all of us - torture. Or maybe

What about Bronson Pinchot’s performance did you like?

The reader did a good job, especially emphasizing points as I'm sure the author would have wanted.

Outstanding overview of the Marines in WWII. It covered all significant actions in vivid detail yet provided great strategic overview. Highly recommended

Brooks account of the various battles in the Marianas is compelling and well researched. And very readable. I highly recommend this to anyone interested in the Pacific campaigns.
