Narrator Leighton Pugh gives a masterful narration of this account of the bombing of Dresden, Germany, by Allied Forces in February 1945. McKay's work looks at the city and people of Dresden before and during the war, and his account of the bombing is a personal account told by those who survived it. Pugh's voice has a stentorian quality that may remind some of listening to a documentary from the BBC. Although seemingly dispassionate, he is expertly expressive and has superbly clear and precise pronunciation. His language training is ably displayed in his delivery of German names and places. Despite the horrific nature of this account, Pugh is the perfect voice to bring it to listeners. M.T.F. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2020]
