While Mr. Zuehika's material is top notched it is often made suspect by Mr. Munley's mispronunciation. Words like PIAT, RAM, Haida are all badly pronounce, he even mispronounced adjutant.
Even though I know these mistakes aren't Mr Zuehika's fault such basic mispronunciations can not help help but cause the listener to question the overall accuracy of the book.
The fault for this I lay squarely at the feet of the book's audio director, better care should have been taken to ensure words were properly pronounced.
Which is a real shame because Mr. Zuehika's 'just the facts' primary document prose is excellent. Especially for such a critical book which covers a period that has been given lip service by so many historians. If D+1 to D+7 was better covered outside of academia maybe such units as the 12th SS wouldn't be lionized the way the are today.
For me the narration is far too "americanized" and is also strangely stilted in delivery; hence the very low rating from me? This is a great shame for the author and story (which if read with more feeling & accuracy would probably rate 5 stars from me).
