What made the experience of listening to A History of the Peninsular War 1807-1809 the most enjoyable?
Well researched and presented material
How could the performance have been better?
If you could find someone to read the book who doesn't butcher the English language. It is cav-al-ry, not cav-ary and pam-plo-na, not pam-ploo-na. The reader continually mis-pronounces words and it is very annoying.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
No way. Couldn't tolerate but a hour or so at a time of the reader, it was very painful at times.
Any additional comments?
Super book, be aware of this reader related to future purchases. Where is Robertson Dean or Michael Kramer when you need them?

Unfortunately impacted by the narrator's atrocious pronouncing of French names.
Is anybody reviewing these priductions before the audio release?

A classic work I've longed to hear, absolutely mauled by incompetent narration. I could have wept. Even basic words like catastrophe were mispronounced. The tale is a magnificent work of late Victorian painstaking research. Oh, for a remake!
