In a spirited narration, Malcolm Hillgartner presents fascinating portraits of the four individuals who snatched victory from initial defeat in WWII: FDR; Henry Stimson, Secretary of War; General George C. Marshall, Army Chief of Staff; and Admiral Ernest J. King, Chief of Naval Operations. The author's narrative is lively in describing the characters of these four men, warts and all. The audiobook focuses on the decisions they made and the actions they took that put the U.S. on a war footing quickly and that led to the Allies triumphing over both Germany and Japan. Hillgartner's resonant baritone is expressive. Though he moves at a quick clip, he is still easy to follow. He delivers narrative sections in a consistent voice and gives each quotation an appropriate imitation of the speaker. M.T.F. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2015]
