    More than 40 years after it ended, the Vietnam War continues to haunt our country. We still argue over why we were there, whether we could have won, and who was right and wrong in their response to the conflict. When the war divided the country, it created deep political fault lines that continue to divide us today. Now, continuing in the tradition of their critically acclaimed collaborations, the authors draw on dozens and dozens of interviews in America and Vietnam to give us the perspectives of people involved at all levels of the war.

    When the illustrated edition of The Civil War was first published, The New York Times hailed it as "a treasure for the eye and mind". Now Geoffrey Ward's magisterial work of history is available in an audio edition that interweaves the author's narrative with the voices of the men and women who lived through the cataclysmic trial of our nationhood: not just Abraham Lincoln, Frederick Douglass, and Robert E. Lee but genteel Southern ladies and escaped slaves, cavalry officers and common foot soldiers who fought in Yankee blue and Rebel gray.

    The son of a Protestant missionary and small-town pastor with secrets of his own to keep, Ferdinand Ward came to New York at 21 and in less than a decade made himself the business partner of a former president of the United States and was widely hailed as the "Young Napoleon of Finance". In truth, he turned out to be a complete fraud, his entire life marked by dishonesty, cowardice, and contempt for anything but his own interests. This is a great story about a classic American con artist, told with boundless charm and dry wit by one of our finest historians.

    Dating to 1899, Brother Ward offers this masonic sermon. He examines God's role in a mason's life. He makes a connection between the passage, "[L]et there be light" in the book of Genesis and the "more light" that Freemasons seek. He ties in morality with this light and discusses charity at some length. He also discusses how darkness may cause a mason to fail at achieving a moral life and emphasizes the importance of the Bible in a mason's life.

Farther and farther from the surface, death and evolution change his world. He'll have to change, too, or watch his wife rise without him.
