The epic saga continues

(4.5 stars)

Yet again the epic saga continues in more information flows from this rich. American history. The story is read by multiple people which makes a few readers hard to follow but is still so gripping and rich in dripping of detail that it’s so enjoyable. Of course it will be better with one single reader but then again we may have a bad signal reader. I continue on with the saga to find out more as the story goes highly recommend it

A definitive history of Lincoln and the war

(5 stars)

This is a fantastic history book. Perhaps the best I’ve read. I’m a big Lincoln and Civil War buff so it might be too long for some people.
