I’ve had the same issue as other reviewers. My download stops at High Noon at Leyland and does not include anything relating to the Falklands War. There’s obviously an issue with this download.
I have re-downloaded it twice but this hasn’t made any difference. I am waiting for a response from Audible as I assume the problem is at their end.
Hopefully this will get sorted as it’s a really good book - like the previous ones - and I’m sure the final chapters will be worth the wait. Just very frustrating.

If you haven’t read or listened to Dominic Sandbrook’s work before, you’re in for a treat. Carefully and thoroughly researched, this is an accurate and fascinating look at early ‘70’s British and the battle between the government and the unions. This doesn’t feel biased in either direction, and offers a balanced in-depth consideration of political and social history.
This book is narrated by David Thorpe who is fluent, articulate and does a great line in accents!

Entertaining, informative & fascinating

I love Dominic Sandbrook’s writing. His books are accessible and easy to follow. He writes with knowledge and confidence about British history, including cultural, social, economic and political influences and events. David Thorpe (the narrator) is an absolute genius at impersonations!
Please can all Dominic’s books be narrated by David, and can it be sooner rather than later?
