This PulitzerPrize-winning novel brings us face-to-face with key participants in one of the bloodiest battles in American history. Reader Christopher Hurt brings life to Michael Shaara's words as listeners examine the Battle of Gettysburg through the eyes of leaders from both sides. Hurt's narrative style never overdramatizes or overplays roles. He brings an appropriate wistfulness to his voice in the closing chapters as we learn of the hopeless feelings of Confederate Generals Longstreet and Armistead. The sobering reflections of Maine college professor turned Medal of Honor winner, Joshua Chamberlain, leave the greatest impression. Maps to help orient the listeners and better tape quality would make this a near perfect effort. T.J.M. Winner of AUDIOFILE Earphones Award ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPT 92]
