    Since its publication in 1960, William L. Shirer’s monumental study of Hitler’s German empire has been widely acclaimed as the definitive record of the 20th century’s blackest hours. The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich offers an unparalleled and thrillingly told examination of how Adolf Hitler nearly succeeded in conquering the world. With millions of copies in print around the globe, it has attained the status of a vital and enduring classic.

    Story

    I read the 3 book "Third Reich" series by Richard Evans first, then this. Both are good. The narration is much better with "The Rise and Fall." It's hard to criticize Shirer's near perfect work.
    I guess if I had any criticism at all it would be that this book focuses intensely on the leaders and political details of the Third Reich and not much on the feelings of the common man and woman witnessing and suffering the "Rise and Fall of the Third Reich". Having said that , it simply is a great book!

    The narrator of this timeless adventure story is the lad, Jim Hawkins, whose mother keeps the Admiral Benbow, an inn on the west coast of England in the 18th century. An old buccaneer takes up residence at the inn. He has in his sea chest a map to the hiding place of Captain Flint's treasure. A gang of cutthroats are determined to get his treasure map, and - led by the sinister, blind pirate, Pew - descend on the inn.

    Story

    Great narration and a great story, however with the price at $2.95 it cannot be beat!
    There are a very few spots in the recording where there is brief distortion but it passes quickly and takes nothing away from the pleasure of listening!
