There are few times in a reviewer’s experience when the hairs on the back of his neck rise at the end of a story. Megan Hicks’s evocative writing and spellbinding performance take the listener into a world of blood, smoke, and explosions, reminiscent of THE RED BADGE OF COURAGE. An unfortunate production choice gives Hicks’s voice a metallic ring that slightly lessens the effectiveness of the story. But her performance so engages the listener that it pushes the boundaries beyond a simple telling of a historical episode in a horrific battle and enters into the realm of nightmare. What was civil about that war? Nothing. R.O. 2005 Audie Award Finalist © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE/JULY 05]
