Marines Will Hate This Narrator.
Would you consider the audio edition of The Greatest U.S. Marine Corps Stories Ever Told to be better than the print version?
No. At least in the print version if someone is butchering the words it has to be me.
What other book might you compare The Greatest U.S. Marine Corps Stories Ever Told to and why?
Can't think one as I was so overwhelmed (or is it underwhelmed) by the mistakes by the narrator.
How could the performance have been better?
The narrator referred to a Marine Lance Corporal as a Lieutenant Corporal. He referred to a B-A-R as a Bar. There were many more of these types of mistakes. I am an old Mustang Marine Captain whose Dad was a BAR man in the Pacific. He never referred to his weapon as a Bar. Calling a L/Cpl a Lieutenant Corporal is just ridiculous. It really ruined much of the book for me.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
With or without a narrator?
Any additional comments?
Either get a narrator with military experience or get someone to proof his narration. I don't believe it is the narrator's fault but someone should have caught the many errors. It takes away from the authenticity of the book.

Just the high lights folks
There are so many stories of Marines, that it would be impossible to tell them all. Marines are a unique group, a breed unto themselves. It's hard to explain unless you are one and then no explanation is necessary.
