Winston at his best

Engaging memoirs, packed with a healthy dose of impressive self judgement. At its best when Winston speculates on how he could have won the war .... For both the allies and the hun.

Truly excellent narration

A thrilling book elevated to greatness by a marvellous performance from the narrator.

Make sure you’ve listened to the previous two parts first.

PERFECT READER!!!!

An absolute unique performance; in an unusual approach to producing an audiobook, this recording have the history and the book, by Winston Churchill, rendered in a true, real-life voice approach by performer Christian Rodska. What could easily have turned into a farce, the marvelous performance by reader Rodska, not only saves the book, but brings the life and times of Winston Churchill so instantly into his own entire story of WW1. The book is a masterpiece of valuable first-hand insight by Churchill. The reading is a unique reenactment of Churchill himself in the given time-period of the history.

History at it's best.

A history of the first world war by someone who was there. As you listen to it, you think about all the people who died in it. You realise just how bad it was. The words of Winston Churchill take you back to that time and tells what happen. Some of the best history I have every listen to. Christian Rodska is great he is just right for the voice of Winston Churchill great work.

typical Winston. imperialism to the end

Fascinating to hear Winston's version of the war coming from a pre-Nazi English Empire World-view.
