Fabulous history of US wars
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Yes--interesting and concise look at wars/conflict. I was not generally interested in wars, but this book was a perfect description of how the wars started, how they progressed, and how they ended. More importantly, the author summarized and gave his opinion on who won and who lost and what other outcomes were significant.
What was one of the most memorable moments of America at War?
I was struck by the author's determination that dropping the atomic bomb in Japan actually saved lives because the Japanese would not otherwise have given up and more would die in battle.
What does Sean Pratt bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Excellent performer--perfect way to present this material.
