    Story
    If you could sum up The Second World War: The Grand Alliance in three words, what would they be?

    From the beginning to the end of this all encompassing novel I was thoroughly engaged in the drawn out personal, political and military battles leading up to and through WW II. Churchill's account of the war can hardly be questioned considering his complete immersion in all the major events of the war years. He seems balanced in his views relative to the strengths and weaknesses of all the major combatants and his wry humor is evident throughout. His meetings with Stalin were particularly informative and entertaining. Christian Rodska's vocal impersonation of Churchill was spot on and yet he was equally persuasive as he switched from character to character.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Second World War: The Grand Alliance?

    Churchill's personal meetings with Roosevelt and Stalin were both poignant and heroic. The interactions between the old English Warhorse and the Russian revolutionary were combative at times and yet is was obvious that there was a certain warmth and mutual respect that could be seen throughout.


    Have you listened to any of Christian Rodska’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, this was my first opportunity


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, it is a very long enterprise.


    Any additional comments?

    Highly recommended
