Tell us about yourself!
The narration of the story was excellent. Really astonishing how many times wwII could've been prevented but a sociopath leader could manipulate the entire world out of fear. How so many were led to follow this person and do heinous acts on other humans is terrifying. Also the bizarre relationships with Italy's Mussolini, Russia's Stalin and Japan.
Dare to dream...
William L. Shirer has created a very fine historical account of the rise and fall of Hitler's nightmare which became a terrible reality to humanity, and an abomination before God.
Grover Gardner's narration is superb. Well done!
There was one chapter on cryptography and I found it fascinating...
It seems like an extremely long book when you first start, but it flies by like a good movie. I found this book enthralling.
This question is clearly meant for works of fiction. This is a book of history, not fiction. However, I think the author did manage to tell this important history in a very narrative and exciting way.
I have not.
History happens in the span of a minute.
Don't go through the whole book in one sitting. Split it up over a month or two, peppered with other works about WWII.
History, historical fiction and mysteries are my faves, but a fan of all genres.
Intersting not a dry account of facts and figures or a text book. Highly recommend.
This book is incredibly detailed and informative. Anyone interested in WW2 and German history will appreciate this book. My one complaint is that the book is dated and the author slightly too opinionated. He refers to the 'homosexual perverts' within the Nazi ranks. While there may have been homosexuals in the group, I don't appreciate homophobic and prejudice comments in the midst of otherwise informative writing. As always, critical reading/listening is a must.
Extensive history of Nazi Germany. The narration is excellent and the historical references really helped make it come alive.
This performance was different. The last one I listened to (North and South) had many characters that he able to develop. I still enjoyed it very much.
More about the facts leading up to the war and not the war.
Yes if I new what the book was about.
Great sounding voice.
No not my style.
