CHURCHILL AND THE SECRET SERVICE

by | Read by Frederick Davidson

History • 18 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1997

Did Churchill hear of Pearl Harbor beforehand and callously withhold the information, forcing the U.S. into the war? Certainly he protected the "golden eggs" of secret intelligence, raised and fed the goose that laid them. And rarely showed the other Allied nations all his cards. But even if he could keep his mouth shut, Churchill was best known for the magnificent sounds he made when it was opened wide. Here homage is paid. Starting off as the standard BBC announcer, narrator Frederick Davidson cranks up for the stirring speeches and dips the pithy observations in venom or bile. This reading is superb. No, Winston wouldn't do that. Not to us. His mother was American. B.H.C. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 99]
