In the second volume of his acclaimed new history of the Second World War, James Holland examines the momentous turning points of 1941-1943: Hitler's invasion of Russia, America's entry into the conflict, the devastating Thousand Bomber Raids over Germany, the long struggle in the deserts of North Africa and the defeat of the U-boats in the crucial Battle of the Atlantic. As in his first volume, Germany Ascendant, he interweaves his account of the well-known events of the period with the personal stories of individuals caught up in them - on all sides.

This being my first review for audible books, I must say, I am very impressed. the narrators range of voice and the moving description by James Holland, makes you feel as though you are transported back in time, sitting at your radio... and hearing these epic events in real time. Loved it.
