I would listen to it again because there is so much detail around the lesser known stories of this important conflict.
He has the perfect voice for historical narratives. His transition to British accents was seamless.
Yes. I would actually sit in my car until the end of a chapter.
Maureen McCormick has a very nice voice - easy to listen to.
She came across as being very sincere
Yes - it really was.
I'll be honest in saying that my primary interest in listening to this book was to hear about her days on the Brady Bunch. I, like a lot of guys back in the 70's, had a big crush on her (or more accurately - a crush on her character). What I didn't expect was how the emotional story of her family life had a grip on me from beginning to end. I found myself walking the dog a little longer and taking longer routes home to maximize my time listening to this book. That's when you know you're listening to a good audiobook. Though she had a huge drug problem and a couple of abortions - somehow I felt like she was still Marcia-like. It's hard to explain that statement - I think you'll have to listen to the book to see if you agree.
This ranks in the top 3 audiobooks I've listened to. Enthralling from the first chapter and it never let up.
The heroism of the pilots on both sides. It just adds credence to the thought that this was the "greatest generation" not only here - but in Germany, too.
Franz Stigler, was my favorite character, of course.
"Chivalry among the knights of the sky"
If you are a student of the second world war, or if you just enjoy human interest stories - this is the book for you.
