THE GREAT ESCAPE Nine Jews Who Fled Hitler and Changed the World

by | Read by Anna Fields

History • 10.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2006

THE GREAT ESCAPE is the story of nine Hungarians--scientists Leo Szilard, Edward Teller, and Eugene Wigner; computer pioneer John von Neuman; photojournalists Robert Capa and Andre Kertesz; film industry giants Alexander Korda and Michael Curtis; and author Arthur Koestler--who left Budapest to avoid the Nazis and individually and collectively changed the world. The book is a testament to these men and to their determination. Anna Fields is an ideal reader, who demonstrates her versatility by using an elegant style and pacing the material so that the reader can share in Marton's admiration for these extraordinary men. Fields also brings out the personalities behind these geniuses with deft use of inflection and tone. D.J.S. 2007 Audies Award Finalist © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/ MAY 07]
