The War Begins. A Call To Arms

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, because it is beautifully written and gloriously narrated. It is an excellent example of how war brings forth feeling of national unity. The outrage the poet felt is palpable.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Fourth of August?

The rhyming in this poem is exquisite. For instance:

Among the nations nobliest chartered,
England recalls her heritage.
In her is that which is not bartered,
Which force can neither quell nor cage.

Which scene was your favorite?

The entire poem builds up to a crescendo of emotion.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The last two stanzas are very moving.

Any additional comments?

The narrator did an excellent job with this poem. One of his better performances.
