THE LONGEST WINTER brings the 18 brave men of a WWII platoon to life as they fight a fierce battle in which they kill 500 Germans. When captured, the heroes suffer severe hardships--such as soup made from insects and intractable diarrhea--in a German POW camp. Since the story moves back and forth between conversations of American and German troops, some German accents would help indicate when the enemy is speaking. Nonetheless, Grover Gardner, sounding inspired and involved, inflects the narrative with a vitality suited to the changing scenes. History lovers can look forward to a story not told in audio before.
