More like Attila The Sweetheart, it is said that on hot summer days when the tribes didnt really feel like fighting, Attila would make ice cold lemonade for both armies. And when his tride won a battle, Attila would buy everybody ice cream and provide them each a slave for foot and back rubs. That Attila, ...heck of a swell guy!
I saw this one in scrolling through the Biographies, and i said to myself,
"Pol Pot?, why not" Reaaaaallly Good! Insightful and great production.
This is perhaps the best purchase I've ever made on Audible. I've tried every conceivable genre of audiobook from poetry, to fiction, to drama to speeches and everything in between. But this collection of radio reportage from WWII era material is simply astounding. There are live broadcasts of battles occurring, with radio journalists doing their best to describe what is happening and other clips which stopped me in my tracks.
The material is woven together so well that there is no need for narration most of the time and overall the breadth of war time experiences one is exposed to in this documentary is so much more than anything you would hope for from a single audiobook.
I thoroughly recommend this and the companion volume The BBC War Reports: The Second World War: The Home Front. Together these works represent just about the pinnacle of radio documentaries and therefore top class audiobooks.
