This detailed chronicle of Algeria also provides abundant information about the Mediterranean conflict, religion, geography, and politics that affected it. Bill Kelsey's precise pronunciation and measured pace escort one through a long and pedantic session on North Africa, but with well-told asides and anecdotes maintain the listener's interest and attention. However, one disadvantage of learning history with audiobooks is the lack of maps and pictures. Horne's rather disorganized placement of events would benefit if the timeline in the back of the printed version were available. J.A.H. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC/JAN 01]
