TERRIBLE TERRY ALLEN The Combat Career of One of America's Greatest Fighting Generals

by | Read by Reathel Bean

Biography & Memoir • 2 hrs. • Abridged • © 2003

Terry de la Mesa Allen led troops in two world wars, with his 104th Division Timberwolves arriving first at the Elbe River as WWII drew to a close. Gerald Astor paints a big picture of Allen's role but makes room for smaller details, such as his stopping to pet a dog during formation at West Point and his letters to the families of soldiers in his unit who were killed. Reathel Bean reads with the sort of bold booming voice listeners would associate with a documentary like VICTORY AT SEA. He creates voices for historical figures but puts the emphasis on clarity. The documentary style makes this title a good choice for WWII history buffs. J.A.S. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 05]
