David Drummond adroitly narrates this well-researched account of Robert E. Lee with a sonorous bass voice. Lee was a distant relative of George Washington, his wife the great-granddaughter of Martha Washington, his father-in-law Washington's adopted son, and his father, "Light-Horse" Harry Lee, one of Washington's favorites. Juxtaposing the tension between Lee's family heritage and his ironic/hypocritical/traitorous (you choose) decision to go with Virginia and reject President Lincoln's offer of Command of Federal Forces at the beginning of the Civil War, Drummond keeps listeners' attention throughout. Drummond achieves an excellent match of text and reader with a seemingly effortless narration. M.T.F. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2015]
