Shenkman admits that this is his version of truth and that truth in history is difficult to ascertain. Furthermore, this isn’t world history, but European history. Reader Arte Johnson, Emmy winner from “Laugh-In,” relies on a sardonic Yiddish style. Johnson attempts to imitate famous voices, Gandhi and Churchill, for example. For assorted French kings he attempts a French accent. His tone reminds the listener that almost any famous event is difficult to recount accurately. Johnson reads quickly and keeps the listener’s attention with a wealth of fascinating information. M.G.S. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: APR 94]
