Publisher's Summary

Legendary CBS news journalist’s iconic radio broadcasts from Europe during WWII

This collection of William L. Shirer’s radio broadcasts tells the vivid story of WWII and brings the suspense of the times to life for today’s audience.

As the first journalist hired by CBS to cover the war in Europe, Shirer compiled two and a half years’ worth of wartime broadcasts including Hitler’s invasion of Austria, the armistice between France and Nazi forces in June of 1940, daily roundups of news from Paris, Vienna, Berlin, London and Rome, documenting the conditions of these countries under invasion.

Listeners in the United States and worldwide listened with growing horror as Shirer brought a sense of gripping urgency to the events happening in Europe as Germany took those menacing steps towards WWII.

Shirer was also the author of The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich.
