Alexander tells the story of the German Blitz in Western Europe, focusing on strategy and tactics but also giving detail on operations and individual conflicts. Ray Porter’s voice is announcer-like—not charming, perhaps, but clear, energetic, and expressive. His pace is sometimes a bit too quick, given the many names, places, and military details in the text, but he’s adept at bringing out the author’s feelings and judgments—usually disbelief, scorn, or even sarcasm at the appalling incompetence of the French. Unfortunately, he frequently mispronounces both German and French, which is often confusing and sometimes unintentionally funny. It’s a regrettable flaw in what is, overall, an engaging performance.
