NPR's American Chronicles: World War II is a 3 hour collection of 27 stories broadcast over the radio network from 1982 to 2010 around the topic of World War II.
|Atomic mushroom cloud over Nagasaki|
This is an exceptionally strong collection - even the worst stories are quite good. My favorite is the story of Tuskegee Airman Alexander Jefferson who tells his story with a lot of zest and hauntingly tells of visiting the death camp at Dachau and noting that the ovens used to cremate the victims were still warm. The reports are well narrated and include lots of music from the era and bits of radio reports to give the listener more of a feel for the time.
I rate this audiobook 5 stars out of 5.
