James A. Warren is an executive editor at Columbia University Press, where he publishes books on military history, among other subjects.From AudioFile:
This history of the modern U.S. Marine Corps, detailing the past 65 years, seems sketchy and incomplete. That's because there is so much ground to cover, so many wars and incursions, so much internal and external politics. Dick Hill, one of AUDIOFILE's Golden Voices, contributes his kindly baritone and adds the inflections of a booster, a fan, a cheerleader of the Corps. There's nothing wrong with that--he plays to his audience and does it well. Hill's easygoing style gains a slight excitement at appropriate moments, but this is a reading rather than a performance. Still, he makes listening a pleasure as long the listener has interest in the subject matter. D.R.W. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
