This composite history of the crucial turning point in WWII seems designed for an ensemble performance. The narrative is pieced together from the words of dozens of participants--soldiers and civilians--40 in all. The global action shifts from North Africa to the South Pacific, from the battle lines of Stalingrad to an obscure physics lab in Chicago. It's a concept built on parallelism and counterpoint, a concept that might have been effectively carried out by three or more voices. Instead, a single narrator, Mark Bramhall, performs the full narrative and all its diversity of voices. Bramhall's range is limited, and his character voices are often strained and unconvincing D.A.W. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2023]
