The story of Francisco Franco, caudillo of Spain for 50 years, relates the details of his upbringing, military experience and political career. David Case reads this extensive biography with a pompous British accent, which has the effect of Franco telling his own story. Interspersed with the narrative are dialogues and reminiscences in voices that bring each speaker to life. Both English and Spanish slip easily off Case's tongue, drawing the listener into the story. Even the footnotes and digressions are presented appropriately in a "parenthetical" tone. M.B.K. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 97]
