Would you listen to Hell in a Very Small Place again? Why?
It's likely I'll listen to this again - it's easy to miss something in a complex history, and this one more so than others. It's hard to remember what each unit is - something that is easily remedied in print and one of the few downsides of audiobooks.
What did you like best about this story?
The battle is famous but not well-discussed in most other sources. The detailed research is excellent and the analysis generally pretty good. It's the completeness of the relating of the battle's events that really makes this book worthwhile.
Which scene was your favorite?
Since there's very little to feel good about in this history, there really isn't a "favorite scene".
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
Any additional comments?
The book's weaknesses as an audiobook include a non-adherence to linear time. Some parts of the story are told until the end and then we're returned to a point in the battle without quite recognizing how it meshes with what we just heard. This is less a problem when reading, but in an audiobook makes it hard to follow at times.
Still, it's not nearly as dry as it could have been and one appreciates the comprehensive nature of the book.
