CS ISBN $240.00 Thirty cassettes
This riveting account of the brilliant and intricate campaigns of deception, code-breaking, and counterespionage carried on by the Grand Alliance against Hitler, which led most stunningly to the tactical surprise of the Normandy invasion in June of 1944, is just about un-turnoffable. It’s true that 30 cassettes is a lot of any performer and especially a lot of David Case. That his Germans all sound like music hall Hitlers is especially regrettable, given the heroism of the German Resistance here revealed. His American voices are equally quacking. But he does a fine Churchill, and the strengths of the book are far greater than the flaws of the reader. B.G. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 01]
