Good Summary of Complex Historical Period

I received a review copy of this audiobook.

I am not sufficiently familiar with WWII to say for sure whether these 50 events are really the key events to understand the period, but it seems to do a good job. I think I would prefer a text copy I could flip through over an audio version.

Succinct and informative.

A great quick review of WWII, especially for those who want a crash course. Well spoken, easy to follow, definitely recommend. If you have a decent knowledge of history already, it's thin, but a good overview. Enjoyed the narration - well done.
