Shaara's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel of the Battle of Gettysburg makes inspiring listening in both the unabridged and abridged forms. The recent release of HighBridge's abridged version brings the compelling story to a broader audience. George Hearn delivers a colorful interpretation, using Southern voices for the Confederate generals and a hard-edged Northern cadence for the Yankees. Hearn's version is dramatic and is highlighted with excerpts from Randy Edelman's stirring score from the movie adaptation, GETTYSBURG . An added plus is a map that spans the three days of the battle. R.F.W. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN 97]
