    "Did not like reader"
    What would have made The World Crisis - 1911-1918, Part Two better?

    I am afraid to say the reader or readers tried to sound like Churchill. No good. spoiled the book for me. Have you tried Tim Piggot Smith as a reader? he does a brilliant job.


    Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Christian Rodska?

    Tim Piggot Smith

    "Full of details, but no big picture"

    I liked very much The Second World War, and thought that WWI would be similar. But it focuses mainly on what Churchill himself was involved- The Drdanells campain. Telegrms between generals are described in detail, whereas the global picture of the war id not mentioned.
