Excellent performances

Being mad about Great War history and loving a good dramatization, I thoroughly enjoyed this. The distinctive voices of Lesser, Fielding, and Shrapnel are supported by other excellent performers who bring the critical issues of this period to life through the interactions of the war’s idiosyncratic leaders. Minimalist, intensive glimpses into the pity of war. A wonderful listen for Poppy Day this year.

My only criticism: Each episode plays to the end and closes. They will not play continuously.
