Generally, this book is considered one of the better biographies of Churchill. Having read a number of them I would agree. The recording itself is well done, though the part that deals with Churchill?s life between the wars is a bit slow and dry. This, however, seems to be the case with any book of this larger-than-life man.
He was a small cog in the great machinery of WW II but he had a front row seat, which he shares with us. This book gives a glimpse of what the war was like at the point of action. It is not only tremendously enlightening it is very entertaining. If you have an interest in naval military history as told from an individual combatant?s perspective, you should consider this book.
You either love or hate Gen. Macarthur, but it is hard not to love this book. When the book was first published, I rushed to buy a copy using what little money I had saved as a teenager. This was money well spent.
It is with great pleasure that I report that this recording has brought this book back to life for me. Of the dozens of books I have acquired from Audible this one ranks as number one.
First, the banter and silly voices distract from the content. Second, most of the content was silly and few useful recommendations were made. Third, the book is dated and its references to presentation technology were essentially useless. There are much better books on this topic at Audible.
