At times interesting, but quite a long haul.
Would you try another book from Maury Klein and/or Ben Bartolone?
If it were shorter
What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)
would have been interested in hearing more about the aftermath - demobilization.
What aspect of Ben Bartolone’s performance would you have changed?
his cadence was half a beat to fast. It was as if he was rushing at times. The performance still clocks in over 34 hours. Narrator had at times some eye brow raising pronunciations and left me with the impression he had little familiarity with the subject matter or at least the time frame in which it was set. (I imagine that is not why he was hired) His voice is pleasant enough and I got use to the performance.
Do you think A Call to Arms needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?
a focus on demobilization would interest me.
Any additional comments?
The material is at times very dry. You have to be pretty wonky to want to listen to it. I did learn much from it and overall enjoyed it. However, at times it felt like work.

Very scholarly work.
If you're interested in the details of what went on in America during the war years, this is the book for you. the narrator doesn't know how to pronounce several names and places and that can be distracting. He also seems very disinterested in the topic at times, as if he is just reading a technical manual. Otherwise very good.
