    Previous books have promised to describe the combat experience of the World War II GI, but there has never been a book like Patrick O'Donnell's Beyond Valor. Here is the first combat history of the war in Europe in the words of the men themselves, and perhaps the most honest and brutal account of combat possible.

    What didn’t you like about Scott Brick’s performance?

    He uses this cheesy, fake emotional tone that removes the reader and ruins what otherwise are some awesome stories

  • The Ultimate Battle: Okinawa 1945: The Last Epic Struggle of World War II

    The Ultimate Battle is the full story of the largest land-sea-air battle ever waged by the United States, a battle whose staggering casualties and take-no-prisoners ferocity led Truman to drop the atomic bomb on Japan. From April through June 1945, more than 250,000 American and Japanese lives were lost, including those of nearly 150,000 civilians who either committed suicide or were caught in the crossfire. This book tells a gripping story of heroism, sacrifice, and death.

    Overall the book was great: well written, covers every aspect of an important historical battle. Only downside was the author's source use. Out of two Marine divisions that fought on the ground, the author only uses a couple sources from K/3/5, 1 Mar Div (the guys from 'The Pacific' TV series that have numerous books written. Not even sure the material was from interviews he conducted personally...), really would like to get more and previously unheard perspectives, rather than those that have already been written.

    Four days before Christmas in 1943, a badly damaged American bomber struggled to fly over wartime Germany. At its controls was a 21-year-old pilot. Half his crew lay wounded or dead. It was their first mission. Suddenly a sleek, dark shape pulled up on the bomber’s tail - a German Messerschmitt fighter. Worse, the German pilot was an ace, a man able to destroy the American bomber with the squeeze of a trigger.

    Phenomenal story and well written. A must-listen. A true, touching human interest story. A movie should be made of this immediately!

  • Juno Beach: Canada's D-Day Victory: June 6, 1944

    Story

    On June 6, 1944, the greatest armada in history stood off Normandy and the largest amphibious invasion ever began as 107,000 men aboard 6,000 ships pressed toward the coast. Among them were 14,500 Canadians, who were to land on a five-mile-long stretch of rocky ledges fronted by a dangerously exposed beach. Drawing on personal diaries as well as military records, Juno Beach: Canada's D-Day Victory, June 6, 1944 dramatically depicts Canada's pivotal contribution to the critical Allied battle of World War II.

    Dave Hedley says: "Well done book, narration annoying"

    Story
    What did you like best about this story?

    It's similar to the common narrative we frequently read, but gives us the perspective of the "other end" of the Normandy beaches. So if you are into the Normandy story, this is a great addition.


    What three words best describe Steve Kehela’s performance?

    Bad. Reads like he's half computer. Absolutely horrible German pronunciation - something you'd think they'd screen before narrating a WWII book. Doesn't detract for the story however.
