A brief but informative story of World War Two. Narrated well by Jonathan Keeble.
I will listen to again.
Very easy listening.
If anybody wants a beginners guide to the war this is a perfect resource. It covers a vast panoply in a very short introduction. It is no substitute
For a detailed examination but a very good primer.
"Very good, quick revision"
This is an excellent overview for anyone who wants a summary of key events into which they can slot all the details they might have learned previously.
It strikes a good balance between creating a coherent narrative but still including surprisingly comprehensive information for such a short recording.
It's also a very fair price.
More of these "history in an hour" productions would be very welcome!
"Fills the gaps for me."
my ability to listen with advanced time delivery thus enabling more information in a briefer period
I very much like these History in and Hour presentations. They give me the basic facts to which I can add additional information as I wish.
"Good, quick overview"
Yes, it gives you a broad brush picture to help see the bigger picture.
Thanks for this view of that era.
"A Great Review"
This was a good review of the Second World War. I think it would be useful for high school students or college students to get a little background knowledge of the war.
