    Story
    (334)

    It is the 20th century's unrivaled epic: At a staggering price, the United States and its allies liberated Europe and vanquished Hitler. In the first two volumes of his best-selling Liberation Trilogy, Rick Atkinson recounted the history of how the American-led coalition fought its way from North Africa and Italy to the threshold of victory. Now he tells the most dramatic story of all - the titanic battle in Western Europe. D-Day marked the commencement of the war's final campaign, and Atkinson's astonishingly fresh account of that enormous gamble sets the pace for the masterly narrative that follows.

    Story
    Would you listen to The Guns at Last Light again? Why?

    The story is written in a cogent manner that takes the reader (listener) through conflict of WWII in Europe while describing the broad strokes of the conflict and including details of soldiers at the personal level. The narrator does a good job of capturing the listener's attention.


    What other book might you compare The Guns at Last Light to and why?

    The author's previous two book on WWII in the European theater are equally well written and narrated. This trilogy places WWII in Europe in an accurate and complete historical account.


    Which character – as performed by L. J. Ganser – was your favorite?

    Ganser is talented at subtly changing his voice and inflection to capture quotes and characters.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The book is engaging -- it makes my commute enlightening and entraining.


    Any additional comments?

    Must buy along with the previous two books.

    One may view industrial/organizational psychology as the merger of industry, organization, and its relation to psychology. Industrial relates to industry, referencing, “the economic activity concerned with the processing of raw materials and manufacture of goods in factories.” The organization is “an organized body of people with a particular purpose, especially a business, society, or association.” Psychology represents the scientific study of behavior and mind. Industrial/organizational psychology is the merger of these three entities into a single scientific discipline.
