    1. Audio This is the audio companion to Professor Winik s excellent April 1865 I thought I knew a lot about the Civil War but Professor Winik has some new new tales and ideas to add Other reviewers have criticized the professor s supposed speech impediment but I think it is of a splitting of tracks on the cd s in 5 minute segments that explains this He does repeatedly want to have you imagine yourself in certain scenes that may be overly dramatic but a likely explanation is his enthusiasm for the [...]

    2. Interesting information here, all of the events that occurred in the month of April 1865 I learned a great deal, for instance putting together the timing of Lee s surrender and the remainder of the Confederate Army s or rather Armies surrenders And Lincoln s assassination, which happened less than a week after Appomattox The downside of this recording is that Winik has some of Tom Brokaw s annoying speech difficulties, and talks too fast, misspeaks regularly, and repeats himself word for word o [...]

    3. I was looking for an audio edition of Winik s April 1865, and this lecture was the closest I could come to it The lecture follows the outline of the book with much less detail and therefore much less of the flavor that makes the book as readable as it is Unfortunately, a lecture is not a reading of a script usually , and this performance is rife with repetition and occasional mis speaking One particularly annoying tendency is Winik s lack of use of the series.

    4. The information was fascinating The delivery of said info was not It reminded me of one of those TV documentaries where they Repeat the info over and over again in a weak attemr mightpt at building anticipation Mr Winik might be a great author of history but he doesn t make a great narrator But all in all , I know SO much about this incredibly important time of American history.

    5. Fascinting lecture series from Recorded Books that talks about the events of April 1865 It helps better understand the events surrounding the end of the Civil War and the assassination of Abraham Lincoln.

    6. Interesting perspective on the final month of the Civil War and its major players Lincoln, Davis, Grant, Lee, Booth, Sherman, and others.

    7. Excellent book I learned a lot about the Civil War that I didn t know before This book makes me want to go find out .
