What made the experience of listening to Supreme Commander the most enjoyable?
Even if not all the facts are correct, as stated by a reviewer on Amazon.com, this is a compelling read. It is an evenly paced, extremely well written story that obviously needed (re)telling, as MacArthur's astounding achievements in Japan are today largely forgotten. My knowledge about MacArthur, gleaned from reading about the Pacific theater, was of an accomplished general, but a flawed, vain and self-centered man. This book changed my perception about him completely. I certainly am going to read more about MacArthur and I hope I can find more biographers like Mr. Morris, who give MacArthur the credit he is due.
What about Charles Constant’s performance did you like?
The reader did his job very well. He has a very pleasant voice, not much of an accent and a tempo that suited me fine. I hate overbearing, brass voices, with heavy American accents.

This was an excellent book; well researched and was written in a very balanced manner. With General Mac, from my previous research, the authors either loved him or hated him and texts were written accordingly. This book has to go down as the most balanced I have read to date.

Loved learning more about a much unsung successful of US occupation.
Laid out MacArthur's involvement in Japan very well.
As this is the first audiobook I've listened to that's not narrated by the author that might explain why it was a bit wordy sometimes and more like a read sermon but performed clearly and well.
