Publisher's Summary

Threads of the War collects and shares personal narratives during real events across the span of the 20th century's war. From the seats of a German cinema in 1915 and high over Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, to under the water of the port of Alexandria, Egypt, and on a rail line in East Prussia in 1945, the listener is carried from one front of war to another in short, easily listenable yet emotionally compelling bursts. Each story in this collection opens the door to a unique personal facet of war, exposing the listener to the facts, fictions, and fallacies of armed violence. Following each story the listener is provided specific and revealing facts about the events narrated, offering both entertainment and education within the time it takes to read a blog post.

War Stories with a Bit of Embellishment

I was gripped by this book from the opening story! It begins with a father teaching his son how to fly a plane. Before they know it they are unknowingly in on the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. It was exhilarating!

While I didn't find the rest of the stories as gripping, they were interesting and seemed embellished facts.

John Pirhalla is a very strong narrator and he performed all very well.

If you are the least bit interested in tidbits about 20th-century war wars and conflicts I'm sure you will thoroughly enjoy this book

*I received this work in exchange for my review; good, bad or meh. I've written all 3 kinds.

Interesting Historical Fiction

What did you like best about this story?

Each story has its theme and fits into a great listen. I loved the historical connection each presents and what we can learn from each is equally important.

Any additional comments?
