©2004 Max Arthur and the Imperial War Museum; (P)2004 Random House Audiobooks
Too short by far, but an outstanding audiobook. These are the personal recollections of UK soldiers, WRENs, etc. collected by the Imperial War Museum in London. The author took the time to edit together his source material for this audiobook rather than having a narrator read from transcripts. You hear the events described by the people who experienced them. Outstanding; and I will be buying more (all!) of the audiobooks in this series. If you have trouble understanding the British, or more likely, Scots, you will probably not have any luck trying to understand them when they're in their 70s or 80s. Having said that, I didn't find the accents to be an issue except in a very few mumbled sentences. Some (all?) of these stories came directly from the excellent "Forgotten Voices of WWII" paper book by the same author.
"Incredibly moving first hand accounts"
From start to finish to hear these men and women tell their stories is really moving.
