In 1777, aiming to crush the American rebellion and win for himself a lasting fame, British General John Burgoyne sets out from Canada with a massive army. Losing the help of his Indian allies and slowed by the nearly impassable terrain, the flamboyant Burgoyne finds himself locked in the battle of his life at a place called Saratoga. There, under the heroic leadership of General Benedict Arnold, the rustic American force claims an unlikely victory, and a turning point is reached in the American Revolution. Filled with heart-pounding action and true stories of intrigue, bravery, and patriotism, Volume 4 of Prelude to Glory captures the high adventure of America's quest for independence, a struggle that would have surely failed except for the hand of Providence.

Disapointed with the abridged version
by Diane - reviewed on August 11, 2001
I was extreemly dissapionted knowing that I could only get this book in the abridged version, we have bought all of the work & the Glory series and so far all of the prelude to glory series on cassett. the puchase price is double what the book is but it is worth it to buy this book on cassett, we would even be willing to spend more if that is an issue. but you kill the book, without all the details. My Husband has a new love of history because of your book. Please offer both versions, the abridged and unabridged, for those of us who like listening to the entire book.
No to an abridged recording.

I have to add my comments about an abridged version. I at first thought it was a misprint. It's sad that we won't purchase any more of the series because we will not listen to an abridged version. Making this change after three volumes of unabridged just doesn't make any sense.

I too am dissapointed in the abridged version of the book and would like to purchase an unabridged version.

My greatest disappointment is the abridgedment. After listening to hour after hour of great detail, to loose it to an abrivated edition is very sad. I would gladly spend the extra money to have the full detail.
