Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Through a detailed account of Patton’s final years in command, the book considers the myriad parties that benefitted from his untimely death, from Joseph Stalin to an American spy looking to remain cozy with the Soviet Union. In clear, accessible language that takes us inside the minds of historical figures, O’Reilly and Dugard create a blend of fact and fiction as riveting as any thriller.” Barnes&Noble.com
“O’Reilly’s narration…[is] highly dramatic.” AudioFile

Good story, painful narration

I thought O'Reilly would be a great narrator since he's on television, but I was wrong. His voice is pretty annoying actually. It seems like he was in pain when he was reading.

That said I'm not a big O'Reilly fan anyway, so take my opinion with a grain of salt.

The story itself was really interesting. I think reading (instead of listening to) this one is the way to go if you have the time.
