This popular book disappointed me because it was too much horrors if war and too little Churchill.
I enjoyed the book, the reader was a bit too monotone for my liking.
Too much information for me. I guess I did t realize before purchasing the book.
Fabulous. Brings a real "You are there" intensity and insight to the innermost aspects of Britain's defense against Germany in the early days of WWII--including Winston Churchill's US strategy and his relationship w/ FDR.
Excellent excellent excellent
Woild have liked to see some clear type of ending
A terrific read that I listened to with my wife on a long road trip - and loved it again! I have read many accounts of this time, including John Colvill’s diary, and love to continually fill in gaps as well as developing a clearer picture. I am presently reading the war diary of Field Marshall Alan Brooke and if you are looking for another side of this time this is a wonderfully illuminating read!
Great book. Meant to give it 5 stars. The narrator gets to be irritating as he does the character’s voices. Especially the females.
The marvelous connections the author makes with private public with the splendid Churchill
Great book. Fantastic narration that really captivated the reader. Definitely worth the time.
