BATTLE CRY OF FREEDOM The Civil War Era Volume 1

by | Read by Jonathan Davis

History • 20 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1988

McPherson's finely wrought history of the Civil War era reflects outstanding scholarship partnered with a talent for storytelling. This Pulitzer Prize-winning account is done justice by Jonathan Davis's somber, almost hypnotic, narration. This first of a two-part series begins with a detailed explication of the history, politics, and economy that precipitated the war. This volume ends in the spring of 1862, by which time America is firmly ensconced in a war that is tearing it asunder. The listener is sure to be drawn into the horrors and complexities of this most fascinating and consequential period in American history. To that end, McPherson's writing and Davis's reading are a perfect, engrossing partnership. M.R.P. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2008]
