Sonorous, smooth, friendly, Nelson Runger's voice carries us gently through this contemplative commentary on comrades whom the distinguished historian Ambrose has studied or known personally. Ambrose's broad range brings us from Lewis and Clark to unsung students and colleagues. He touches on George A. Custer, Dwight Eisenhower, Richard Nixon, and many others (with Nixon standing out as almost unable to form comradely bonds with other people). Friendship comes easily to Ambrose, and the number of divergent persons he has known and liked is remarkable. Runger is the right man for this narration, giving us the impression that he is at the same stage of life as Ambrose, and liking it. D.R.W.
