    Over the past two decades, Antony Beevor has established himself as one of the world's premier historians of World War II. His multi-award winning books have included Stalingrad and The Fall of Berlin 1945. Now, in his newest and most ambitious book, he turns his focus to one of the bloodiest and most tragic events of the twentieth century, The Second World War. Thrillingly written and brilliantly researched, Beevor's provocative account is destined to become the definitive work on World War II.

    Story
    What does Sean Barrett bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His light English accent is stoic and fits the material well. the narrator nails every foreign name and term with expertise and does an excellent impersonation of the accent of everyone he quotes.


    Any additional comments?

    This would be a difficult and overly detailed (and thus boring) work to anyone who does not already have a strong understanding of the trends and larger contexts of World War II. I highly recommend this for someone looking to further their knowledge of the subtleties of WWII, but not a good starter work.
