Having read many of Mark Zuehlke's books, I am a little biased. I would say it is more convenient.
Thomas does not speak as fluidly as he might have otherwise done. As well, one little thing that was a huge annoyance was his pronounciation of Regina (Canadian commanders labelled objectives with familiar names, and commonly used city names like Sudbury, Vancouver, etc). I cringed everytime he said "Reg-eeee-na" instead "Reg-eye-nah".
I would have definitely listened to it in several LONG sittings.
It was like sitting down with a veteran, a pint of beer, and talking for hours about the amazing things he's seen, the way it was back then, and getting his personal thoughts on the whole matter. Very off the cuff, and quite entertaining.
Yes, and I nearly did. It's a quick listen, perhaps too quick, and I didn't want to stop listening to it.
The horror of going up in the Lancaster, and the terrors he experienced was not touched on very much, but this is understandable. It does leave the listening wanting to know more about the raids he participated on, but all is forgiven, and all is appreciated!
