narrator needs work
the narrator was good but very annoying to hear him pronounce Regina wrong, and on every occasion. It's not pronounced
"Re-jean-na" . It's "Reg-eye-na". not complicated. and a little disheartening to when telling stories about the brave men who died in the Regina Rifles.
however the book was good as are all of the the writers other books

Detailed and entertaining...
Would you consider the audio edition of Terrible Victory to be better than the print version?
Haven't read the print version.
What did you like best about this story?
The personal narratives enliven an, at times, dreary recounting of a fascinating and under-reported campaign.
What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?
The narrator is NOT familiar with military terms ("coy" is company, for example) and basic mispronunciations of other words grated.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
Up Scheldt Creek without a paddle!
