The problem I had with this second book is twofold. The main problem is that towards the end of the book the author(s) lost interest in writing about the subject. That gave the book a feeling like it was rushing towards the end. Another problem I had with the book was the somewhat silly axis vs allies slant on the story. Maybe it's got to do with the years having passed between writing the book and reading it today, but it annoyed me quite a bit.
The writing at times seems to be a bit arkward at times, too often the author explains things that need not be explained. It's almost as if he assumes the reader is suffering from a short-term memory loss problem.
The voice of the narrator went well with the very often pompous writing, but I doubt I would like to listen to this narrator's other work.
I really was looking forward to this last book in the series, and then I found out that the narrator had been changed so that now we're stuck with a man whose voice must be a serious threath to the producers of barbiturates.
What happened to Roy Dotrice?
