    Few moments in history are as stirring as the Allied liberation of Paris. Yet few people are aware of how narrowly, and how miraculously, the city escaped Hitler's secret plan to reduce it to ashes. Is Paris Burning? reconstructs, in meticulous and riveting detail, the network of fateful events, day by day, moment by moment, that saved the City of Light.

    Overall

    While the subject matter is about the extraordinary heroism displayed by "regular people", the narrator's feminine, pompous upper-class presentation completely destroys any opportunity to enjoy the author's work. Nobody enjoys hearing anyone talk about themselves incessantly, and yet the narrator has hijacked an event involving four countries, and made it about himself.

    This is just awful.

    If audible customers are unable to stomach a purchased item for more than 10 minutes, can we request an exchange for a book that is treated seriously?
