This was difficult especially the last two hours with jumps in the recording. The Narrator was at times hard to understand.

I found all the chapters interesting and well read, however, without a chapter on the Cold War and in particular the Vietnam War and finally the 2nd Iraqi and Afghan war, and the divided nature of American society I think it fails to provide insight into how America is viewed by the rest of the world.

With a prior understanding of the time only peripheral I found this review into Roman History very compelling and easy to listen to.

I loved these books in the early '80s and they are still great. Can't wait for the 2nd Chronicles

I very much enjoyed listening to this book. I learnt a great deal about the war itself and the frailities ans selfishness of those in power. As an Australian I would have liked to hear a little of the role of Australians, Koreans and New Zealanders in the war - but that is only a minor criiticism. Thanks for producing this.
