Fascinating and approachable history
The American Military Frontiers was a fascinating audiobook. It traces the history of the US Army back to the very beginnings of our nation. It contains a wealth of information. I listened to it in smaller increments than I usually do to help process all the information. I learned quite a bit and am interested in learning more on several sections covered. One example is the Civil War on the frontier. The production values were very good. The volume was steady and there were no extraneous noises. Mr. Chekijian has a pleasant voice. He spoke clearly and I had no difficulty understanding what he was saying. I would recommend The American Military Frontiers for anyone who enjoys American history. Although it may seem more academic, I found it to be very approachable without having an advanced education.

What did you love best about The American Military Frontiers?
This book is an overview of the U.S. Army’s involvement in the Indian Wars from 1783 to 1900. It covered the essential material explaining their involvement with western expansionism of the U.S. population, their assistance in improving the frontier infrastructure through the building of roads and assisting with the construction of railroads.
