This is the second in a series of fascinating novels focused on the early battles of the Civil War. Reader Hayward Morse gets high marks for effort. His strength is in the real-life expressiveness found in the dialogue passages. However, some vocal characterizations are right on target while others are much less effective. In addition, there are some incorrect geographical pronunciations ("Po-tow-mack” and “Merry-land”), which are probably the result of the production’s British origins. But on balance this is an enjoyable and educational effort. T.J.M. © AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC/JAN 00]
