In a unique approach to understanding our past, Naxos has combined the eyewitness accounts of 60 people into a fascinating chimera of historical events, ranging from coronations to executions, that took place between 480 B.C.E. and 1945 C.E. Using a pleasant sprinkling of light classical music, British readers take the parts of the storytellers--sometimes with appropriate foreign accents--weaving their diverse accounts into an integrated presentation by narrator Tim Pigott-Smith. Whether you're with Charles Lindbergh looking for the Paris airport at night or Samuel Pepys watching the Great Fire of London, your fantasies will travel through time and space in a whirlwind of memorable episodes.
