Here's Wallenstein:

wonderful performance, Foon. :thumbs: Wallenstein in all his sternness, cunningness and passion. And you got to say the famous sentence "Therein I recognize my Pappenheimers." The original German sentence has become a famous saying in Germany since then.

There's only one missed sentence which needs to be added:

> at about 0:13: (p. 302) missing lines: “This may end in something. Mark you. They are still doubtful, and may be won.

thanks !

all 4 sections now PL ok. Yes the section about Poland made me think that even into the 20th century, it still was unlucky in politics and its independence threatened. :? So this was an ongoing problem for that country.

All sections beautifully read, thanks :)

oh yes, this Russian campaign was a major disaster for Napoleon (or rather, for his troops). It seems we encounter Napoleon in every book now. :? I guess he is interwoven in all of European history at that time.

A wonderfully sensitive reading of Pushkin, Nemo. :9: Absolutely PL ok. Thank you so much.

wonderfully narrated, all 4 of them. And very interesting, especially because I visited both St Petersburg and Istanbul on my travels already and I liked both cities. :9: I'm happy that you enjoyed these short snippets too. :)

Textually, no errors at all :thumbs: , I'd only like to point out that you are exceeding the end silence a little bit each time. I'm not too picky to the second, so I will mark Sections 18, 86 and 87 PL ok already.

For Section 19, your end silence exceeds 8 seconds though, which is a bit long. Could you please trim that down to our standard 5 and reupload ? All the rest is fine. Thanks !
