    John Mosier presents a revisionist retelling of the war on the Eastern Front. The conventional wisdom is that Hitler was mad to think he could defeat the USSR, because of its vast size and population, and that the Battle of Stalingrad marked the turning point of the war. Neither statement is accurate, says Mosier; Hitler came very close to winning outright.

    Story

    I have always been fascinated about history and particularly events of the eastern front during the WW2. For or a person such as myself, who has already read dozens of books covering the subject you seldom come across something that has completely new information or points of views.

    This book challenges some of the prevailing theories and takes the listener to whole other level in understanding the events in the eastern front. The theory that the outcome of the war was evident years before the war even began was really insightful. I'm not convinced that everything was correctly displayed or that the conclusions are 100% accurate but I liked the fresh perspective anyway. Mosier is correct when he states that history is written by the winners so in general we know only what we are supposed to know.

    As long as listener remembers to be careful and objective as to what can be considered "truth beyond reasonable doubt" and what are the writers conclusion and theories this book can be considered well worth listening. It had fresh perspectives, bold conclusions and the reader managed the job well.

    Story

    I doubted the very concept of this kind of hypnosis/relaxation audibles but I wanted to try anyway since I was having trouble falling asleep and this audible was reasonable priced. I thought I got little to lose but lot to gain.

    First time I gave it a go I was sitting in the car (don't worry my wife was driving) and it worked like a charm. I fell asleep in no time. Since that I used it maybe 10 times and it works so well that I've never actually have been able to listen it through and through. For that reason I really can't give you any specifics about this audible other than Gurgevich has relaxing voice and in the beginning he gives you introduction to this field.

    Bottom line is that if you have need for relaxation and want to fall asleep this is one audible to consider.
