These are nicely sized introductions to important conflicts in world history. Several of the overviews, including the one for the failed Bay of Pigs invasion, are more detailed than you might expect from such a short listen, and that's a good thing. The narrators vary, although all are clear-voiced and pleasant to listen to, and appropriate instrumental music filters in and out of the recordings. A listen that's guaranteed to make you feel smarter, and likely to provide useful background for understanding today's news.
