The United States at War series by Blackstone, and read by George C. Scott are very well done. They are brief enough to remain very interesting but detailed enough to provide much more information than the average high school or even college level history class below the graduate level. The character voices and use of relevant quotes really add to the value. I have read this one, the World War II volume, the World War I volume, the Civil War volume, and the Revolutionary War volume and find them all to be equally fascinating and detailed. I have ordered the Korean War, Vietnam War, Mexican War, and War of 1812 volumes and expect that they will be equally great. For full disclosure purposes I have a Master's in Arts in History from Texas A&M University Central Texas. but I do not work for Blackstone or any of its affiliates.
