WHEN BOOKS WENT TO WAR The Stories That Helped Us Win World War II

by | Read by Bernadette Dunne

History • 6.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2014

Narrator Bernadette Dunne energetically delivers the audiobook of how the U.S. and its Allies defeated the book burners during WWII. What hasn’t been known until this book came along was that we did it partly by giving books to every GI who wanted them. This not only gave the soldiers something to do but also strengthened the publishing industry and reinforced the idea that reading is a vital activity for an educated citizenry. The program, like the war, turned out to have positive long-term effects on the country. Dunne varies her husky pitch and tone, enunciating every word. She doesn’t have to create any characters, as the book is narrative history, but she does highlight the sources and sets them apart through pauses and changes in emphasis.
