Summary

In ancient Israel, at the crossroads of the great trading routes, a man named Benaiah is searching for a fresh start in life. He has joined a band of soldiers led by a warlord named David, seeking to bury the past that refuses to leave him. Their ragged army is disgruntled and full of reckless men. Some are loyal to David, but others are only with him for the promise of captured wealth. While the ruthless and increasingly mad King Saul marches hopelessly against the powerful Philistines, loyal son Jonathan in tow, the land of the Hebrew tribes has never been more despondent - and more in need of rescue.
Over the course of ten days, from snowy mountain passes to sword-wracked battlefields, Benaiah and his fellow mercenaries must call upon every skill they have to survive and establish the throne for David - if they don’t kill each other first. Day of War brings to life the exploits of the Mighty Men of Israel, a rag-tag band of disgruntled warriors on the run with David, the soon-to-be King. Their legendary deeds are recorded in 2 Samuel 23 and 1 Chronicles 11.

Praise and Arrows

Cliff Graham tells the story of King David using the stories of his Mighty Men using scripture as the foundation and his research on ancient Hebrew fighting tactics. The story is told from the perspective of his soldiers and it really lays out the importance of having a band of brothers.

Nice Perspective on old stories

What made the experience of listening to Day of War the most enjoyable?

I liked the detail and the way it brought new light to the story of Kind David.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Can't really say.

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

I liked the voice it was strong.
I would have like to hear this one in drama style different voices to help separate characters better.

If you could take any character from Day of War out to dinner, who would it be and why?

Probably none, I don't imagine they would have good table manners not sure that was what warriors worried about.

Any additional comments?

I hope they do make a movie of this one as I read about. I think it's a good story for visuals.
