Author Neal Bascomb's detailed research and John McDonough's skillful narration create a vivid picture of the lives of the Russian sailors aboard the Battleship Potemkin. McDonough is a familiar name to aficionados of audiobooks, and he rises mightily to the occasion of relating the stories of the individuals behind the legendary mutiny. The gravitas of McDonough's voice is appropriate to both the majesty of the Russian Imperial Family and the desperation of the sailors' conditions that led to mutiny. McDonough's narration incorporates his trademark robust voice with expert pronunciation of Russian names and places. Bascomb's history of this significant event is enlivened by McDonough's equally rich reading. Fans of history will welcome this recording, and even the casual listener will be caught up in the story of the sailors and the ship.
