But it truly did feel like a great loss to have such a tremendous work and man represented so poorly. For a long time I thought the narrator was intentionally mocking Churchill. Thankfully, by the very end I was able to fully tune out the tone and focus on the riveting prose.
Even though a lot of people complained about a different narrator of this book compared to the previous, I personally found that this narration is just as good or possibly even better than in the first book. This book is a must listen. It's a perfect account of Churchill's personality and the environment that lead him to make the hard decisions. I found myself disgusted with how shortsighted Chamberlain was and the parliamentary interplay of values, intrigues and power was extremely fascinating. As I said a must listen.
really great to hear about underlying narrative to one of world's greatest heroes. sadly, civilization will probably continue to not listen to good council until it's too late.
This book is excellent if you want to learn more about the years leading up to WWII and the key figure of the British during that time, Winston Churchill.
it is rare for a book to awaken you as to what our country needs.
Just a mesmerizing and inspiring look at the preface to the Winston Churchill I knew during the war. I could not put this down and you feel completely ready to take on anything life can throw at you afterwards.
...but that's to be assumed I guess, given the period and events. The reader didn't do the voices or accents nearly as well as the reader of the previous book. That guy was fantastic.
