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.
Tim Piggot Smith
Essential reading for anyone who wants to know the backbone of events amd political context of the battles amd outcomes.
"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.
