the Armenian people being resilient have spread

A good overview of Armenian history and the resiliency of a people. Being located in the prime territory is both a boon and a bane, as well as being between or in the path of empires

suffering inflicted upon a defenseless

My only beef with this audible is that the prose frequently gets in the way of the story and occasionally the facts. But overall a good read and something more of us should know about.

Armenia, first Christian kingdom

the Armenian Genocide, the Wars and the Wars of Alexander’s Successors, but pretty much nothing else. Turns out there’s a long story of Armenian struggles from Ancient times to the present.

Very interesting

Captivating History has put a bunch of information in a short read that you will listen to quite a bit from.

Good info, weak prose

A good audible as listen about a topic that seems more important to human history than I had previously thought. I had a passing familiarity with Armenian history since the fall of the USSR.

significantly extended period of history.



Would have liked to know more about the average inhabitants, rather than just the mercenary, murdering succession of rulers.

Excellent account of Armenian suffering

I was very impressed by all that Armenia had gone through in their amazing history. No matter how many times they get knocked down, they keep getting back up. Even after having nearly 3/4ths of their population wiped out, they keep rising up. Like all Captivating History works, I discover bits of unknown history. I look forward to listening to all the works I can.

Naration and first half was weak

I felt like I was listening to a foreign correspondent on BBC for 7 hours. Not a terrible job, but nothing great, if not tedious at times.
The entire book seemed less historically neutral and more to be telling the listener how to think & feel about what happened, and the first book in particular seemed very sparsely academic in the coverage of world history in regards to Armenia. The second book is more compelling, as the intent is clear from the beginning that it is about experiencing the narrative story of the genocide and winning hearts and minds. It was better at illustrating events and evoking emotional connection, and, hence, has a fitting tone to that intent.
All this being said, I knew virtually nothing of Armenian history beforehand, and this book was a good introduction for me. Glad I could learn what I did.

A must read!

Loved this audiobook. Very sad yet true description of centuries of struggles of the Armenian people. Turkey to this day continues to actively deny the Armenian Genocide by falsifying history. Unfortunately, they are able to get away with that because they shut everyone's mouth with oil money. Armenia is the only christian country in the way of Erdogan's dream of pan-turkic empire and to this day they continue their carefully orchestrated genocide of christian Armenians as evidenced by their heinous crimes during October 2020 Nagorno Karabakh war, and yet again, they are getting away with it...

The Armenian diaspora is well-explained

In more recent times, the Velvet Revolution, as explained in this audible shows how the tiny republic of Armenia purged itself of corrupt ministers and presidents without firing a shot.
