    Over the past two decades, Antony Beevor has established himself as one of the world's premier historians of World War II. His multi-award winning books have included Stalingrad and The Fall of Berlin 1945. Now, in his newest and most ambitious book, he turns his focus to one of the bloodiest and most tragic events of the twentieth century, The Second World War. Thrillingly written and brilliantly researched, Beevor's provocative account is destined to become the definitive work on World War II.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to The Second World War the most enjoyable?

    Very well written account of the war. Concise, yet informative. Keeps your interest by adding lesser known facts about what the people who were not in the armed forces were going thru.


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

    The horrible treatment of women and girls by both sides


    Which character – as performed by Sean Barrett – was your favorite?

    Churchill - did his voice the best


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

    yes .


    Any additional comments?

    If you want a great summation of WW 2 without being engulfed in minutia that only a historian would want, this is the book for you. Complete, easy to follow, yet very complete with the major facts, as well as lesser known events that keep the whole book interesting.
