Audible Editor Reviews

The steadfast naval Blockade of Germany is remembered as a key factor in the Allied Powers’ eventual Great War victory. For Germans, the blockade led to starvation, disease, and casualties in the hundreds of thousands. Bookish BBC radio maven Stephen Murray examines the blockade’s increasingly debilitating stranglehold on Germany during World War I’s waning days. A veritable who’s who of classic British drama - including Michael Burrell (The Hound of the Baskervilles), Gary Hope (The Avengers), and Michael Kilgarriff (The Dark Crystal) - take turns portraying British policymakers and military strategists, as they debate the virtues of extending the blockade to the Aegean. Lord Palmerstone’s soaringly patriotic speech in the House of Commons sets the tone for these rigorous and regal Parliamentary debates.
