Humorous and poignant

Not as difficult as some Faulkner, The Unvanquished deals with the Civil War through the eyes of a youth who matures during and after the war and who recounts his encounters with violence. From the violence eventually a pacificist viewpoint emerges in light of the Almighty's dictum: thou shall not kill. Yet there is humor throughout the book, and you may find yourself laughing out loud. And the skill of the narrator is of the highest quality I have heard on audio. Enjoy.

- Doug "Retired teacher of literature with an interest in religion and in science and in history. I have loved reading for 50 years."

Better listened to than read.

Even though reading it is also great. Highly recommended, evocative of what it might have been like to lived in the midst of the Civil War
