DARKEST HOUR How Churchill Brought England Back from the Brink

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by John Lee

History • 6.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2017

Detail-rich and utterly fascinating, this audiobook delves into the personality of Winston Churchill and analyzes how he became one of the most influential leaders in history. He became prime minister of England on the eve of Hitler's invasion of Belgium, the Netherlands, and France. Narrator John Lee performs Churchill's voice and speech patterns perfectly. Lee further displays his linguistic prowess with his interpretations of the French, Italian, American, and German leaders of this critical period. Listeners will hear Churchill's meetings with ambassadors, his War Cabinet, and other heads of state as he leads Great Britain through what was soon to become WWII. Lee is a powerful performer, and his impeccable portrayals of Winston Churchill and other heads of state are second to none. E.E.S.
