The book and the narration are top notch. You stay riveted as you listen, or at least I did. I listen to a lot of audio books and this is in the top tier...highly recommended. It has important implications to learn from, many newly presented for the first time, according to the author.
I have read many books and Churchill and by Churchill. Winston's War is exceptional, and shows how and why Churchill was the essential man, anhistorically exceptional, yet imperfect leader. A visionary and an anachronism of Imperial Britian, creative and right in saving us from the Nazis, yet repleat with hairbrain and dubious ideas, but he held out and plugged the dike when defeating Hitler seem near impossible, except to him. A story of will, courage, leadership, and greatness, warts and all. We owe Churchill, big time.
This is a decent book and worth it even though it meanders a bit. The narration is it's worst aspect. For some reason, the narrator tries to do any and all quotes in lame accents and drawls. His poor accents detract from the story all all run together. If he just used a normal voice, he would have been fine...in an audio book, the narrator really matters...that said I would probably get the book instead.
