    Inhaltsangabe

    Initially, the Thirty Years War was precipitated in 1618 by religious conflicts between Protestants and Catholics in the Holy Roman Empire. But the conflict soon spread beyond religion to encompass the internal politics and balance of power within the Empire, and then later to the other European powers. By the end, it became simply a dynastic struggle between Bourbon France and Habsburg Spain. And almost all of it was fought out in Germany. After 30 years of conflict, entire regions of Germany and Bohemia were depopulated and destroyed by marching armies, fire, famine, and disease. It bankrupted most of the participants while leaving thousands of German villages, towns, and even cities in smoldering ruin.

    Because of the political and geographical complexity of the early 17th century, an understanding of The Thirty Years War can be difficult to grasp in the beginning. Listeners will be rewarded by patience. As an aid to comprehension, we recommend the online Wikipedia article "The Thirty Years War" for maps and overviews of the geography, principle leaders, and major battles.

    Total running time: 19 hours and 48 minutes. Narrator: Charlton Griffin.

    Interesting overview but

    Würden Sie gern ein anderes Hörbuch von C. V. Wedgwood und/oder Charlton Griffin ausprobieren?

    The reader has such an irritating manner and inflection that it is difficult to get into the material. It is as if he frequently wants to inject his own "critical attitude" by exaggerating and implying ridicule of different points of view discussed, to give the impression of a conceptually imperial attitude. Unbearable!

    Was würden Sie an der Handlung ändern, um das Hörbuch für Sie unterhaltsamer zu machen?

    Choose a different reader!

    Was mochten Sie nicht am Vortrag von Charlton Griffin?

    The implicitly imperial attitude - it is as if he felt he had to improve the material by his reading and that certain points of view had to advocated and others ridiculed so that the reader might be "educated" thereby.

    Wenn dieses Hörbuch ein Film wäre, würden Sie ihn sich ansehen wollen?

    It could hardly be a film - it is a lengthy exposition

    Was wäre für andere Hörer sonst noch hilfreich zu wissen, um das Hörbuch richtig einschätzen zu können?

    Read the book instead, the material would be more accessible and the reader less patronised.

    Good book, sometimes bad pronunciation

    All in all, I was happy with the audiobook. My one big complaint is the pronunciation of the german words and names. As a native german speaker this was irritating at times.

    Great read, but a bit too much focus on pure events vs storytelling

    The reader C. Griffin pronounces the german words quite well, I am a native German speaker. Previous reviewers criticised his pronunciation, I believe it good enough for a non-german and it’s certainly not diminishing the listening experience.

    The book itself is a bit too much focused on mere events, not so much on human characters and social backgrounds/religious backgrounds and religious arguments. This is just my subjective perception.
