End of the Civil War
Another Great Dusty Rhodes Book!
Absolutely. I enjoy Dusty Rhodes writing style and have most of his audio books. I think it takes listening to his books more than once to glean the most from his stories.
Shiloh. He was a boy with everything to look forward to when he joined the army at age 19. Everything was taken from him; primarily by the heartless Union Colonel who ran Camp Douglas, the prisoner of war death camp Shiloh was sent to. He was subjected to untold mental and physical suffering as the Colonel tried to get him killed in the gladiator games, but they couldn't kill him nor break his spirit. Even being forced to kill or be killed did not destroy his compassion nature.
Many times, and enjoyed each performance. His performance in Shiloh was perfect. The voices fit the characters being portrayed.
The man who refused to die!
The supporting characters make the story even more interesting. There's the Confederate field doctor who treated Shiloh's injuries received from the barbaric gladiator games he was forced to participate in, and Lester, one of only a few fellow prisoners Shiloh counts as friend. Shiloh, still injured from his last fight, was told he had another fight the next day with an experienced knife fighter. Lester comes up with an ingenious plan to help the injured Shiloh beat the Cajun knife fighter. As well as an array of other characters.
