Publisher's Summary

Ambrose Bierce brings to life the heart rendering stories of divided loyalties, splitting families, states, countries, and individuals. He writes of the glory in beginning and savagery in the doing.
Here is a moving anti-war series of stories if ever there was one. A must read by all students of American History and Literature, though perhaps best understood by older adults.

Great Stories Poorly Read

Good stories for Civil War buffs, written in somewhat formal and convoluted (but authentic) 19th Century style. The audiobook is haltingly read, as if the narrator is seeing it for the first time, and at some points crudely edited. Bierce deserves better treatment than this amateur production.

Terrible editing

Muffled, fuzzy sound as the narrator reads. It's completely unlistenable. Almost unintelligible. Plenty of times I had to rewind to make out what he was saying, but I gave up an hour in.

Not sure what this was meant to be.

Bought it as thought it was a non-fiction work, but I'm not adverse to well written fiction so perservered. Unfortunately each story is nonsensical and pointless, with very little historical relevance and full of over dramatised characters and description. Audio has been recorded on low budget equipment and is bad, although the unintentional bird song in the background in parts of the book is quite pleasant.
