ONE CHRISTMAS IN WASHINGTON

by | Read by Lloyd James

History • 11.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2005

At the end of 1941, with the U.S. still numb from the Pearl Harbor attack, Roosevelt and Churchill met at the White House to plan the Allied strategy for defeating the Axis. The two leaders differed in personality, methods, and goals but were actually fond of each other. James does a wonderful job of illuminating a historical event not previously well chronicled. His diction is clear, his pace doesn't drag, and he seems to be in sympathy with the colorful Churchill, the manipulative FDR, the brilliant George Marshall, and the somewhat snobby Brits. He pauses before words to give them more emphasis. Listeners who try this title will learn something and enjoy doing it. J.B.G. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/ JUL 06]
