Narrator John Sessions's adept vocal skills are well employed in this account of the various missteps, miscalculations, and willful blindness of the British government and its people in handling the rise of Hitler from 1933 to the evacuation of Dunkirk. Sessions's voice moves at a deliberate pace that is easy to follow, and he usually affects a distinct voice for quotes--with a noteworthy portrayal of Churchill. His voice has an authoritative tone that gives an academic quality to the narrative. Sometimes he swallows his words, but his overall performance makes for a good listening experience.
