my first audible title

this title gives the listener a wide range of great speeches given by key people throughout history. The entire selection is worth getting just for the lesser known speeches of Susan Anthony and Jefferson Davis...but I also found the ones by George Washington to be enlightening.

Historical Rather than Great

To me, only three of the speeches of the selection are truly great, the rest are merely historical.

which history?

the title of this book should have been, great speeches in the history of the west and in particular Britain and North America ... the narroters are excellent, so do some of the speeches, which were all made either at time of sturgle, of war or of facing death.
