History • 18 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1996

This book is a great place to start learning about the country's most tragic war. It is a treasure-trove of factual information about the war's people, battles and myths, but because of its structure, answers to historical questions, it is better read than heard. Narrator Dick Estell does a good job with the material, presenting each short section clearly and credibly. He makes sure we understand each point and reads in a steady, unemotional voice. Some of his mispronunciations stand out, though, and he has a truly unique way of saying "cassette." On the whole, this book is a good way to learn basic Civil War facts.
