Sir Winston Churchill’s History Of The Second World War

I am currently listening to Christian Rodska’s wonderful reading of Sir Winston Churchill’s History Of The Second World War and absolutely loving it . I don’t know what the audio equivalent of “a real page turner” is but this is certainly it.

Churchill’s dry wit and his amaxing ability to convey in a single sentence complex historical and cultural ideas is gob smacking. I keep finding myself comparing him to modern politicians and they don’t come out of the comparison well. It is also fascinating to hear him tell of his own meetings with the key figures of the war and of his political ups and downs.

Iam currently about eight hours in to the first of four ten hour volumes and can’t wait for my next chance to listen.
