Great look back at the WWII era

I really enjoyed this compilation of news clips from WWII. I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in history.

Awful, just awful

What would have made WWII Airmen better?

A plot

Has WWII Airmen turned you off from other books in this genre?

No

Any additional comments?

I can't believe they charge money for this. Cheesy performance at best. WWII is over, there is no need to try and sell war bonds in 2012. This may sound like an odd review but that is all this recording was, a poorly made set of news real audio clips to sell war bonds. If Mystry Science Theator 3000 ever branches Into audio books to rip on, this would be a gem.I have been an audible customer for years, this is the only time I feel I was taken, yes, it really is that bad!
