Comprising only a fraction of the print edition's 35 essays, these six unabridged essays present the listener with a sample of contemporary scholarship on the War Between the States. Subdued and undramatic, the well-written and interesting essays cover such topics as "The Rock of Chickamauga"--Major-General George H. Thomas, Southern strategy, and the amazing story of the Confederate raider C.S.S. Shenandoah. Eric Conger's mellow voice is a nice complement to these essays. His pace is deliberate, his delivery clear and dispassionate. Quotations are read with accents that in no way distract from a good performance. M.T.F.
