Engaging history story

My 9yo history loving son really enjoyed this audiobook. I personally disliked some of the slang and informal language but overall, it was engaging and educational.

Super Engaging

I used this with my boys aged 6-13 for our study of the American Revolution in our homeschool. We all learned so much, and listening to a chapter was a highlight of our school day.

Best book ever!

I need to choose a book to read for school, I am a history buff so I thought I would get this. And oh my god, I made the best decision of my life. This is so fun to listen to when it's my reading time. I am looking forward to listening to the other Guts and Glory books! I suggest that you buy this book, It is really interesting. Tip for the author: Make a ww1, Vietnam, and the Cold War Guts and Glory book. Keep up the good work!

Educational and engaging

Lately nine year old has been extremely interested in warfare, and I was looking for something that was educational and engaging. This book fits the bill. We will be listening to this many times, and will share it with the rest of the family in the future.
