THE STEEL WAVE A Novel of World War II

by | Read by Anthony Heald

Historical Fiction • 6 hrs. • Abridged • © 2008

Because this novel focuses narrowly on the D-Day invasion of WWII, the dramatic arc is clearly defined, and the plot is focused. Anthony Heald knows when to add emphasis to his narration and when to let the action speak for itself. He does a workmanlike job with accents--American, German, English, and a bit of Scots--without artifice. They help the listener distinguish the characters. The abridgment is generally good, but there are spots where material obviously has been cut. Even listeners who know a great deal about the Allied assault on Europe will enjoy the narrative as it reduces major events to the lives of individuals.
