I loved The Winds of War, so when I finished that one I immediately downloaded this one. I wanted the entire Henry story. It didn't disappoint. I gave both books 5 stars. If I had to rank them, though, I'd give the first one, Winds of War, a higher rating, if only slightly. I love how great historical fiction gives me insights and new knowledge about times like World War 2. If you haven't read The Winds of War, put this one off until you do. You'll enjoy it a lot more.
An unbelievable performance by Kevin Pariseau, that has to be heard to be believed, brings to life a story that has everything. History, tragedy, love, loss and victory. An awful war... Thank god we won. Perhaps the only war ever worth fighting.
Very thorough, emotional, vivid, and historically accurate epic scaling the entire war through the main characters' eyes.
Highly recommended if you love WWII history, and both books are well written.
It is easy to forget all the twists and turns of WWII. Especially (for me) the degree to which the U.S. government supplied the Soviet Union equipment through the Lend Lease program.
I am a journalist and editor. I help people write personal, persuasive essays. It's fun work!
I've now read it, watched it and listened to it, and the Audible experience might be the best of the three.
This book takes you right into the lives and the world as it was during world war 2. Important history that we all should learn from is all around you throughout the story. What a great way to understand that time and the choices and events of that occurred. The narrator is exceptional!
I listened to the first 2 hours and it never improved. I was so bored. The 1 star rating on the performance is probably unfair. I could not get through the drab story.
