Sintesi dell'editore

Robert E. Lee, a Christian and a gentleman, was the most remarkable man to emerge from the Civil War and is one of the greatest tragic figures of American history. Reserved and unflappable, savvy and fearless, shrewd and tenacious, fatherly and kind; these are but a few of the adjectives commonly used to describe this noble hero. By using a dramatic form of narrative and relying on numerous eyewitness accounts, Burke Davis brings Lee to life. Listening to this powerful work gives you the feeling you are there, with Lee, Jackson, and the rest. It is a rare blend of history and emotion, a book that speaks to both the mind and the heart.

The war years.

This work describes the life of Robert E. Lee from the period just preceeding hostilities through Appomattox and the surrender of the Army of Virginia. Fairly good detail is delivered through first hand accounts and written documents of the time. I enjoyed the focus on Lee the man as much as Lee the general. A fast paced tell that is easy to listen to without effort as the story unfolds naturally and at a good pace.

As Great a General and Man as America has Made

Though written in the 1950s this book holds up well. It’s clear, concise and easy to listen to. The narrator is excellent. I was disappointed when it ended. Note that this book doesn’t cover Lee’s life after the end of the Civil War.

A must for insight into one of America’s most extraordinary characters

This book is an exciting, chronological account of R.E. Lee’s Civil War years. Mr. Burke makes extensive use of original source material and created a lively and vivid portrait of General Lee. With a colorful cast of characters and geographical detail, I found this true story enlightening and surprising. This is not a comprehensive biography but is a very revealing portrayal of one of the most interesting characters in American history.

Low quality recording

What made the experience of listening to Gray Fox the most enjoyable?

Great story about Lee.

Any additional comments?

Low quality recording. Even in one place, it tells you that you are the end of a cassette - I was listening on an iPhone5. Also, there was a echo - usually a delay, but once it was ahead of the actual dictation. The latter was particularly noticeable with high quality earphones.Not up to Audible's usually high quality.
