  • The Second World War: Milestones to Disaster

    • UNABRIDGED (10 hrs and 42 mins)

    Churchill's history of the Second World War is, and will remain, the definitive work. Lucid, dramatic, remarkable for its breadth and sweep and for its sense of personal involvement, it is universally acknowledged as a magnificent reconstruction.

    John M says: "Brilliant! Only Churchill could have done this."
    "Incomplete Series"
    Overall

    I really liked the book, and immediately downloaded and listened two the next two books in the series. I didn't find out that the last book wasn't available on Audible. Ouch!! I find myself waiting to listen to a book that was written many years ago, about a war that happened many years before that. Definitely listen to the books. I just wish I would have waited until they were all available on audible. Now I am in the dark on whether the war will be won or lost:) I just hate waiting!

    Now Allon is back in Venice, when a terrible explosion in Rome leads to a disturbing personal revelation: the existence of a dossier in terrorist hands that strips away his secrets, lays bare his history.

    Steven says: "great book, horrible audio"
    "Enjoyed it"
    Overall

    I enjoyed this book. It started a little slow for me, but picked up speed quickly. I've read a few history books on the Israel/Palestine struggle, and it was nicely blended into the story. My only criticism is that I didn't appreciate the use of the F word multiple times. I wish authors would at least keep it pg-13!

    This volume of Churchill's history of the Second World War recounts the events of 1941 surrounding America's entry into the War, Hitler's march on Russia, and the alliance between Britain and America.

    John M says: "Fascinating and Insightful"
    "What now?"
    Overall

    This is the third of a 4 volume series. I enjoyed it, but was surprised to find out that the 4th volume is not done yet. What??? I wish I would have known that before I started the first book.

    Do you often dream of living a more rewarding life? Do you aspire to a better job, a stronger marriage, a happier home? Do you wish for more gratifying relationships with your family and friends? Perhaps you simply want to accomplish more and leave a lasting legacy for future generations.

    "Misrepresentation"
    Overall

    I can honestly say that this book was a chore to listen to, and the pastor's thick Texas accent made it a painful 5 hours! Make sure you listen to a preview of this book before you buy it. I made the mistake of thinking that this was a book on setting goals, or actually achieving personal greatness. Unfortunately, it was simply a 5 hour sermon. In a nutshell, attitude is everything, and with God's help, you can do anything. No practical steps, no how to's, just "think and it shall be so".

    Joel Osteen is a pastor, not a self improvement guru. Maybe you need healing, maybe you need help with your attitude, but that's all you're going to get with this book. I myself am a deeply religious person, and I feel a bit bad about such a negative review. However, I feel like the book was misrepresented a bit by it's description.
    Just listen to the preview before you buy it!
