TO WAKE THE GIANT A Novel of Pearl Harbor

by | Read by Mark Bramhall

Historical Fiction • 19 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Mark Bramhall narrates this globe-trotting work of historical fiction, which focuses on the events leading to the bombing of Pearl Harbor. The characters are diverse in background, education, and country. Yet Bramhall manages to capture each regional accent as though he were a native. When FDR speaks in the novel, listeners will be convinced they are listening to newsreels. While the facts are heavy and this audiobook could have easily been a work of nonfiction, it's Bramhall who taps into the emotional resonance of the three main characters and those who surround them. History buffs will love this audiobook, not only because it is so engaging, but also because the people in their lives who are not history buffs will end up being hooked too.
