Historical Fiction • 13 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1974

Michael Shaara’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel of the Battle of Gettysburg makes inspiring listening. The account brings listeners into the minds of each of the generals, Lee, Longstreet and Chamberlain, and beside them in the battles. George Hearn delivers a colorful interpretation, using Southern voices for the Confederate generals and a hard-edged Northern cadence for the Yankees. Hearn’s narrative stresses the dramatic events and is highlighted with excerpts from Randy Edelman’s stirring score from the movie adaptation, Gettysburg. An introduction and afterword by Ron Maxwell, director of the film, adds context, as does an accompanying map of troop movements spanning the three days of the battle.
