TRIED BY WAR Abraham Lincoln as Commander-in-Chief

by | Read by George Guidall

Biography & Memoir • 9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2008

TRIED BY WAR is a prime example of an excellent text in the capable hands of an award-winning narrator. Author McPherson manages to find a unique perspective on the Lincoln presidency as he explores Lincoln's role and effectiveness as commander-in-chief during the Civil War. Burdened as he was with generals either reluctant or unable to perform, Lincoln was forced to learn military strategy and to conduct much of the war from the White House. McPherson also draws an intimate portrait of Lincoln: his triumphs and frustrations, self-doubt and anguish as the casualties on both sides mount. George Guidall is an excellent fit for McPherson's detailed text. His smooth presentation and brisk pacing bring a clarity and energy that will help this work appeal to a wide audience.
