Just the facts, not well read

Where does Warfare in Woods and Forests rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Nowhere near the top, despite my extreme interest in the subject. Much of the info was new and very interesting, but I was left wanting more. It seemed to be a B+ Masters thesis.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

It was simply a recitation of the facts, without the nuanced analysis I had hoped for. The author selected some illustrative wars into which to delve deeply (and very well), but flatly ignored others that were equally significant but importantly different. Furthermore, the final conclusion was simplistic and uninformed, basically that technology may have taken away the advantages previously afforded by fighting in forests. I encourage him to talk to anyone who has either fought in a forest recently or used battlefield technology.

What three words best describe Charles Bice’s voice?

I understand that audiobook readers are hired for their presentation skills, but you'd think that someone recording a book that mentions geographical and military terms would go to the trouble of finding out how to pronounce them.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Not applicable: it's non-fiction.
