Yes but only to study ciphers, not modern encryption in computers.
The speaker is terrific!
Not again, but I had to hear it. My father flew in a B-17 with the 15th.
No characters. The story is of the 15th.
Would like to hear more about the men, and the details of the missions. This was more about the 15th as an organizatoin.
The 8th gets all the pub!
Honest. Eloquent. WINSTON!
It is his perspective.
See the Story of our Time
Yes but not as the first and only. That would be: Rise and Fall of the Third Reich.,
These are his words.
The story and detail was so vivid I felt like a lost my comrades.
The Navy battlefield is a ghost after the battle; it disappears under the sea.
MUCH much better than the book on the Bismark. That one was so bad I got my money back. This one is GREAT.
Only the quality of the story kept me from turning off that horrid sounding man.
"Hello boys!" Of the group of trapped German soldiers wishing to surrender, only 1 could speak English. So as the Rangers approached, the German soldier said the only words in English he knew: "Hello boys!" Hilarious.
I did not hear Eisenhower's short speech to his troops. Wonder why it was not read.
This is a magazine article version of Risk Management. Ok but no time to be more substantive.
"Failure of Risk Management" (D. Hubbard) is the single best book on risk you will ever read. That and "How to Measure Anything" by same author. If you are interested in RISK and you have not read those 2 books, what are you waiting for??!!
The book in its entirety. Parts were weak. Author brought it all together finally.
The author's perspective and reasoning about the role of The Drive on Moscow in WWII.
Yes will try, but not looking forward to it. He sounds like an ad reader rather than a book reader.
When the author stopped talking about deep details and spoke about the decision to be at Moscow's door and why Germany lost. His analysis about the role of the weather is brilliant.
In the middle.
Did not care for the book until the end, now I think it's fine!
This book is about German (75%) and British (25%) naval warfare up until the Bismark was sunk. Very little on the Bismark. I wanted to know all about the Bismark. Almost nothing about this book satisfied me in that regard.
Just ok for overall WWII history. Many other books are better.
No. Clive Chafer is awful. Just awful. The first 15 mintues by Paul Reid were some of the most fascinating tales about The Old Man I have ever heard! Then it goes from great to lousy in one Clive Chafer.
NO to Clive Chafer. Paul Reid is cool.
Make the freekin' story about Winnie!
I did not want a WWII book. I wanted to read about The Man. This book is mostly about everything and for that it does a superficial job.
