An interest in aviation history is recommended in order to absorb the depth of information presented in this description of WWII air campaigns. Details on post-WWI bombers, tactical and strategic planning, and air battles of the European and Pacific theaters require the listener's full attention. Johnny Heller recounts interesting details about the evolution of airframe improvements, armament capacity, altitude, and speed, providing a clear portrayal of how the Allies prevailed in the air war. Heller's performance is very good, combining matter-of-fact explanations with a comfortable tone that belies the accumulation of the war's horrors. Although the listening experience eliminates the visual representation of the warplanes and major characters, the comprehensive narrative gives full background on the subject.
