NO SIMPLE VICTORY World War II in Europe, 1939-1945

by | Read by Simon Vance

History • 21 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2007

NO SIMPLE VICTORY is no simple book. Rather than chronicle WWII from beginning to end, the author explores hundreds of its skirmishes and principal characters in no seeming order. He throws out the names of battles, generals, and politicians without assignation, as though we know them all from a previous life. With an aristocratic British accent, Simon Vance does his best to turn a dry and confusing narrative into a pleasant experience. He performs well with French and Russian names but occasionally loses the last word of a sentence. After hearing Vance adopt the author's attitude and read his flight of opinions, the listener might mistake the narrator for Davies himself.
