Summary

Battle Cry is the riveting Marine epic by the bestselling author of such classics as Trinity and Exodus

Originally published in 1953, Leon Uris’s Battle Cry is the raw and exciting story of men at war from a legendary American author. This is the story of enlisted men - Marines at the beginning of World War II. They are a rough-and-ready tangle of guys from America’s cities and farms and reservations. Led by a tough veteran sergeant, these soldiers band together to emerge as part of one of the most elite fighting forces in the world. With staggering realism and detail we follow them into intense battles - Guadalcanal and Tarawa - and through exceptional moments of camaraderie and bravery, Battle Cry does not extol the glories of war, but proves itself to be one of the greatest war stories of all time.

The narrator ruined it for me.

The book is amazing, the narrator is terrible. I would recommend reading this book yourself.

could not get through it

I'm a big Leo Uris fan... but this was terrible. Bad story, cliche and unbelievable characters... and one of the worst narrators I've ever heard.

painful, excruciatingly painful.... Horrible voice

Cannot endure enough of the "voice" to make a determination of the overall story. An added negative is that the story jumps about with no rhyme or reason leaving the listener to "guess".
I need to return this drivel.

Another hut by Leon Uris.

Battle Cry was an excellent read and of a high Caliber. In the same vein as Exodus and Mila 18.
