Quality content with sing song narrator

Good listen because it provided more in-depth information than is usually available about this particular figure. Would have liked more information regarding the battle on Lake Champlain, as much more is available to be explored. Same for the battles at New London and Richmond, about which there should be much information. Disappointed in the narration which bordered on the melodramatic, with emphasis placed at the wrong times.
