These series of lectures will appeal to anyone interested in the historical background of both the Old and New Testaments. They compliment the lectures of Prof. Ehrman and also open up a whole new field of biblical studies. I just hope Prof. Magness is invited to do another series.

This is a must for anyone with an interest in the history of the British Raj. This book is very well researched, and every detail is relevant. The various plots and large cast of characters have been presented in such a way as to give the listener an easy passage throughout. My only criticism is that it is a shame that such a quintessentially episode of British history was not read by a British actor. The reader gives American pronunciations throughout, which I,
personally, found somewhat grating.

This is the best researched, most engaging historical account of the Battle of Waterloo, I have found. Pacey, witty and full of interesting facts, often overlooked by other historians. It is very well read. It is a pity that Audible could not arrange for a map to be downloaded with this item, as one will be needed to appreciate the full enormity of what was involved in this truly great battle.

Where does 1177 B.C. rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Notwithstanding the poor narration, this audiobook takes pride of place in my Ancient History collection.

What was one of the most memorable moments of 1177 B.C.?

Prof. Cline has satisfactorily resolved the issue of the Sea People.

What aspect of Andy Caploe’s performance might you have changed?

He reads this work as if it were a 'Gangster' novelette. He unnecessarily over-emphasizes words, and I found that I was listening to the delivery rather than the content.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No, because I would carry out further research, after each section. This however was my choice.

Any additional comments?

It is a great pity that Prof. Cline was not allowed to read this work, himself. He is a great lecturer, (see the Great Courses on Audible) and would immediately engage and hold the listener. I shall buy the book.

This work is very well researched, narratively compelling and will drive a Tiger tank through any comfortable ideas that you have acquired from other tomes about World War II. If nothing else, it will raise one question: namely, how the hell did we manage to win the war? I feel confident that after listening to this Audible presentation, you will want to buy the book to have as a permanent basis to cross-reference all other works on this subject..
