SHERMAN by Steven E. Woodworth (unabridged) is presented by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see FEATURES, below). “An excellent brief life of a major and controversial figure.” (Booklist ) As a general in the Union Army during the American Civil War, William Tecumseh Sherman received recognition for his outstanding command of military strategy, as well as criticism for the harshness of the “scorched earth” policies that he implemented in conducting total war against the Confederate states. Self-contained, this audiobook app is perfect for your commute, on a trip, or while relaxing. Based on a library-quality recording, this app was built especially for your iPhone and iPod Touch. No unreadable text, no endless scrolling on a tiny screen. The audio is of higher-than-normal quality, making for a great listening experience that will not tire your ears or grate on your nerves. NOTICE: This app includes the exact same 5-star recording offered elsewhere at much higher prices. It was professionally recorded by Blackstone Audio’s Earphones®-winning narrator, Barrett Whitener. You are not buying yet another amateur or volunteer narration. No clicks, background noises, throat clearing, mispronunciations, tinny voices or monotones will be found here. “Weiner's strong performance helps showcase an exemplary biography of character and leadership.” (AudioFile) •EXPERIENCE.
