The story was great and I enjoyed learning a lot about the role of Special Forces in World War II but the recording was terrible. The volume levels change dramatically throughout the recording, especially in the beginning, and make listening unpleasant at times. Nonetheless I loved hearing about the unconventional warfare mission during the Second World War and how it worked in support of conventional objectives.
