This program was produced specifically for audio and is truly better suited to that format because the many readers make the period writings come alive. The program is drawn from the letters and diaries of participants and those affected by the Civil War. The listener learns about the battles, as well as the lives of those participants. Thus, the program present both military and social history. The cast members sound as if they've been transported from the past; their voices are a perfect match to the readings. The narrator's deep, solemn voice is appropriate for discussing war, and he provides essential information about the background of the conflict, the participants and its long-term consequences of the battles. In addition to the great readings, the program is filled with lively period music. M.L.C. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JAN 98]
