Summary

It is 1943, the third summer of the new war between the Confederate States of America and the United States, a war that will turn on the deeds of ordinary soldiers, extraordinary heroes, and a colorful cast of spies, politicians, rebels, and everyday citizens. The CSA president, Jake Featherston, seems to have greatly miscalculated the North's resilience. But as new demonic tools of killing are unleashed, secret wars are unfolding.
The US government in Philadelphia has proof that the tyrannical Featherston is murdering African Americans by the tens of thousands in a Texas gulag called Determination. And the leaders of both sides know full well that the world's next great power will not be the one with the biggest army but the nation that wins the race against nature and science - and smashes open the power of the atom.

The end is near.

Where does The Grapple rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

One of the best story wise.

What other book might you compare The Grapple to and why?

I have none I can think of to compare it to.

How could the performance have been better?

Another narrator, they should've kept using George Guidell, or however his surname's spelled.

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

Scipio's fate in the camp almost made me cry, even if I knew it was coming.

Any additional comments?

None.
