Summary

Highly detailed and accurate, you will find yourself in the middle of General Buford's skirmish line as he tries to halt the Confederate advance into Gettysburg. You will feel the anguish and hell of war - of the slaughter that took place in the wheat field. You will live the heroism of Picket’s doomed charge and hear the immortal words that President Lincoln delivered in his consecrating address some four months later. No matter your loyalties, Gettysburg will have your heart pounding with its thunderous action, high adventure, and suspense.

Critic reviews

“Here are the fatigue, the despair, the pain, the screams, the deafening cannon plowing through human ranks, death, and dismemberment. Sometimes the politicians are heard, more often the generals and officers and foot soldiers. One would swear that a newspaper reporter with cassette recorder in hand was dashing around the battlefield in the thick of it.” ( AudioFile)

Could have been better without the cursing...

What did you love best about Gettysburg: A Radio Dramatization?

It could have been the best audiobook for 6th - 8th grade but it was spoiled with too much cursing for a homeschool library. You expect there to be violence but not the foul language. The radio drama was amazing and accurate otherwise! Grant it there were no f-bombs but plenty of Damn, Hell, or G-d....sad I must return it. I hope the whole series is not like this :( It seems to be made for young listeners but then...ok...this horse is dead!

What other book might you compare Gettysburg: A Radio Dramatization to and why?

I thought it would be very much like the series by Jerry Robbins called Powder River and it could have been. THAT was a western with shoot-em-up stuff and still it did not have all the cursing.

Any additional comments?

It would be great if AUDIBLE.COM offered a rating system for parents and teachers like the movie and TV industry has. That way we could make informed choices based on CONTENT.

Quite Good

A very good dramatized telling of the battle of Gettysburg. It was given in a new perspective through the radio format.
