THE DIARY OF A NAPOLEONIC FOOT SOLDIER

by | Read by Patrick Tull

History • 4.5 hrs. • Unabridged • ©

The ordeals of a Westphalian conscript during Napoleon's vainglorious trek to Russia are delivered by an authentic-sounding voice. To call this a diary seems something of a misnomer. Tull's reading, with its pauses and reflective tones, suggests more of a memoir given as a speech. The philosophical observations and occasional humor heighten the impression of Herr Walter's presence. The six letters included at the end highlight the documentation, while a shorter background note would have served. The presentation is compelling history.
