Roald Dahl, the brilliant and worldwide acclaimed author of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, James and the Giant Peach, Matilda, and many more classics for children, also wrote scores of short stories for adults.

Roald Dahl's stories continue to make listeners shiver today.

    "The Soldier"

    Great story, very touching, nice reveal and interesting flow, working with the narrator's state of mind. Quietly powerful, well written and well read. A nice short piece.
