THE COURT AT WAR FDR, His Justices, and the World They Made

by | Read by Brian Troxell

History • 13.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Although the current controversies surrounding the Supreme Court may seem like a new phenomenon, this captivating audiobook dispels that notion and highlights how the Court has frequently been a political lightning rod. Brian Troxell sounds like your favorite history professor as he uses emotion, intensity, varied voices, and inflection to bring to life the many personalities central to President Franklin Roosevelt's efforts to transform the Court into an institution more attuned to his views. Troxell accomplishes this by creating distinct timbres for the book's many historical figures, thereby allowing listeners to feel as though they are eavesdropping upon every meeting, including those that would generate instant headlines if they came to light in today's world of nonstop news and revelations.
