WORLD WAR I The Great War and the World It Made

by | Read by John Ramsden

History • 7 hrs. • Audio Program • © 2004

Being a successful college lecturer doesn't guarantee that one can narrate an audiobook. In fact, more often than not, the skills don't translate. But in the case of John Ramsden, professor of modern history at Queen Mary University in London, the transition is a smooth one as he relates the political, technological, and cultural changes that came out of the Great War (1914-1918) and how they shaped our world. Using music, poetry, and other fine arts, Professor Ramsden explores the role of women, attitudes about nationalism, the antiwar movement, and the shifting tides of military ethics. His speaking style is clear, comfortable, and charming. S.E.S. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE/JULY 05]
