THE UNVANQUISHED The Untold Story of Lincoln's Special Forces, the Manhunt for Mosby's Rangers, and the Shadow War That Forged America's Special Operations

by | Read by Fred Sanders

History • 13 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2024

O'Donnell is arguably at the forefront of contemporary historians of America's special forces, and this well-written account of the mostly unknown Civil War irregulars is superbly read by Fred Sanders. The history shows how effective both sides' irregulars were and how their actions and legacy were an inspiration for the formation of American Special Operations in WWII. The author focuses on the Federal Jessie Scouts and Confederate Mosby's Rangers in Northern Virginia but also on both sides' secret services. The audiobook ends with U.S. covert operations in French-occupied Mexico after the Civil War. The stories are all amazing and needed to be told. Sanders's deep, authoritative voice is a good match to the text. His delivery is somewhat staccato, but his enunciation is deliberate and clear.
