An Amazing Tale

I am really happy audible released this book and hope they release all the sequels I think there are 6. This book is an amazing piece of literature. It brings the revolutionary war to life from an unorthodox point of view. A wealth of great historical events and characters is included and this is really a phenomenal book by a well seasoned author.

A great Modern Classic

Got me hooked for the rest of the series: Just as good as the North and South trilogy. A great way to view the history of early America. John Jakes is a great story teller who creates memorable scenes and characters and Mark Vietor is a talented narrator with distinctive character accents.

Thank you Audible for this series...
