At a low point in his political career, at the beginning of WWII (1938), Winston Churchill meets BBC journalist Guy Burgess, who is a spy for the Soviets. Dobbs tells of Churchill’s fight to keep an awareness of Nazi Germany’s actions before the British people and government. Burgess seeks out secret political information and passes it to his handlers. Unwittingly, Churchill and Burgess feed off each other’s energy and drive. Terry Wale reads this detailed narrative with a variety of American and British accents, giving Churchill his soft-spoken tones and Burgess a stiff British accent. Joseph Kennedy, then United States Ambassador to Britain, is characterized by a flat Boston intonation. The drawn-out details of politics and preparations for war are interspersed with bits of action. M.B.K. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 05]
