Another wonderful volume of the Eyewitness series! Tim Pigott-Smith skillfully narrates the story of post-WWI rebuilding and turmoil. His commentary, combined with real voices from the era, brings to life flappers, the first "women libbers" getting the vote, veterans fighting for scarce jobs and returning to civilian society, and Ireland erupting into a war for independence that continues today. With gems of information, Bourke once again develops a bridge between the world's history and the individuals who lived through it. Listeners will find that the decade goes by too quickly and will yearn for the next series to begin. D.L.M. (c) AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 05]
