This anthology of National Public Radio stories describes aspects of WWII, arranged in roughly chronological order. The voices and story formats will be familiar to anyone who listens to NPR regularly. The well-selected stories take advantage of the fact that radio was the dominant news media of the period, splicing contemporary material with modern narration and nostalgic interviews. Because the stories were produced over more than a decade, a careful listener will notice some shifts in what constitutes "the present." The NPR voices are as calm and authoritative as they are on the radio. F.C. © AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2012]
