    Winston Churchill is perhaps the most important political figure of the 20th century. His great oratory and leadership during the Second World War were only part of his huge breadth of experience and achievement. Studying his life is a fascinating way to imbibe the history of his era and gain insight into key events that have shaped our time.

    Wolfpacker says: "Superb - Review of Both Volume I & Volume II"
    "Wonderful title poorly rendered"
    Overall

    Audible continues a line of taking wonderful titles and rendering them, if not unlistenable, unenjoyable. The audio levels on this book are not normalized; the edits are rough in nature; you can hear other takes or material in the background; and the chapter marks on the audiobook align to nothing I can discern in the text.

    For a two hour audio book, this last issue might be a minor annoyance; the preface and prologue of this book, alone, are almost two hours in length. Coupled with Audible's poor implementation on the Zune, it makes any mistake in control manipulation into an exercise in skipping around to find where you last were.
