From the death of Edward VII to the conscription of Ireland, these Eyewitness chronicles offer a creative and stimulating audio record of history. Joanna Bourke seamlessly weaves the factual background with the personal accounts of people who have lived through these times. Tim Pigott-Smith skillfully delivers the historical text in a captivating fashion and expertly paces the delivery. His deference to the personal narratives is palpable. Listeners will get shivers hearing the account of the WWI Christmas Day truce and teary-eyed when listening to little Eva Hart, a child survivor of the TITANIC disaster, say goodbye to her father for the last time. This is a wonderful addition to the series. D.L.M. (c) AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 05]
