Beginning with the January 1865 assault on Fort Fisher in North Carolina and ending with the May 1865 Grand Review of the Armies in Washington, Bob Souer gives a more than competent narration of this account of the final months of the American Civil War. Focusing on events in Georgia, the Carolinas, and Virginia, Wheelan's account is fast paced and portrays the leaders of the U.S.A. and the C.S.A. in all their glory and warts. The common soldier and civilian are also depicted as they struggle to survive the calamity they find themselves in. Souer's baritone voice is steady and somewhat staccato in delivery. His reading sounds more like the presentation of a report than the narration of a book but still captures the listener's attention. M.T.F. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2015]
