    Four days before Christmas in 1943, a badly damaged American bomber struggled to fly over wartime Germany. At its controls was a 21-year-old pilot. Half his crew lay wounded or dead. It was their first mission. Suddenly a sleek, dark shape pulled up on the bomber’s tail - a German Messerschmitt fighter. Worse, the German pilot was an ace, a man able to destroy the American bomber with the squeeze of a trigger.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes: Besides the action built in to nearly every minute, there is the moral, human, and personal elements of war presented in a way that requires the reader to think about his or her own condition. This story is so improbable, yet its truth is indisputable. I would love to see this book made into a movie as a way to present to a larger audience one story of the moral conflict that so many faced during WWII and wars preceding and following it. Buy it, you will not regret this purchase.


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

    YES!

  • A World Undone: The Story of the Great War, 1914 to 1918

    The First World War is one of history’s greatest tragedies. In this remarkable and intimate account, author G. J. Meyer draws on exhaustive research to bring to life the story of how the Great War reduced Europe’s mightiest empires to rubble, killed 20 million people, and cracked the foundations of the world we live in today. World War I is unique in the number of questions about it that remain unsettled. After more than 90 years, scholars remain divided on these questions, and it seems likely that they always will.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to A World Undone the most enjoyable?

    For a novice historian with no real knowledge of the events of WWI to compare this book to, it was a real eye-opener. I drive a couple of hours a day for my job and during that time I listened to this book. Most days I would enter work or home nearly in tears thinking about how avoidable this war was and the pure carnage that took place during it.

    What would our world have been like if this, and the second world war, never have taken place. All the uniquely talented young men who senselessly died, along with the destruction of so much material goods; what would this world have been like today. I just can't imagine how much better we would have been.

    If you have any interest in learning about the who, what, where, when, and hows of WWI this is an excellent book and I would highly recommend it.
