MASTER OF WAR The Life of General George H. Thomas

by | Read by Norman Dietz

Biography & Memoir • 14 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2009

During the Civil War, General George H. Thomas won battles less bloodily than Generals Grant and Sherman, but he does not have their historical stature today. Benson Bobrick clearly plays advocate for Thomas, and Norman Dietz's narration reflects that, adding enough indignation at Thomas's treatment by rivals Grant and Sherman to the otherwise straightforward historical account to make a strong case for the forgotten hero. Dietz creates a warm portrait of the quiet, dignified Thomas, letting the general's good-hearted personality come through with attention to personal anecdotes and details while concentrating on his military strategies and political travails. Dietz’s narration successfully builds Bobrick's conclusion—that Thomas should have been recognized for his character and brilliance. J.S. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2009]
