This incisive look at the war effort of ALL of the major allies gives one a deeper appreciation of the effort put forth to defeat the Axis powers. Most of the work concentrates on the war against Germany; one is struck by the contrast between the strategies of the two sides. Major revelations include the inefficiency of the Nazis, as well as the wonderful staff work done by the Soviets later in the war. The only major blemish is wrongfully giving Eisenhower's birthplace as Abilene, Kansas. Runger's reading is a well-paced and lucid performance that is a wonderful match of text and reader. One is quickly brought into this fascinating work, and Runger maintains the interest throughout. M.T.F. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 00]
