BRITAIN AT BAY The Epic Story of the Second World War, 1938-1941

by | Read by James Langton

History • 21 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

So effortlessly does James Langton deliver this narrative and so precisely does he touch on each nuance in the author's prose that it's easy to overlook the sheer excellence of his skill. That skill is especially effective in sustaining a narrative that upends so many established views of Britain's role in WWII. This first of a projected two volumes covers the prewar era and the first two years of fighting. Allport takes a decidedly contrarian position on nearly every issue he takes up. WWII buffs will find much to chew over here, and Langton's matchless performance gives Allport the best forum for advancing his arguments.
