Inhaltsangabe

In these brilliant essays, some of our finest military historians reveal little-known facts and events from WWII. W.A.B. Douglas exposes the Nazi's armed landing on North American soil. William H. Whyte gives a riveting account of patrolling Guadalcanal as a junior Marine officer. George Feifer follows Goebbels' race to complete one last movie before the fall of the Reich. William Manchester revisits the Battle of Britain and a myriad of "what-ifs" that might have changed that outcome. For the first time, we see the battle of Tarawa from the Japanese side - and learn how the Saipan suicides were cruelly exploited as propaganda. We feel the fear that the Nazis will succeed in developing a superweapon. And we hear the secret a Royal Navy sub-lieutenant held close for 45 years.

    Interesting, but poor quality

    Many small stories about different places and events in 2nd World War, e. g. the only real occurrence of German troops on American soil, Enigma or the vast efforts put on the last Nazi propaganda film. Unfortunately the record has poor quality, so especially for a non-native English speaker like me it's hard to listen via a normal car audio system (Ford Focus, Sony installation).
