Full of details, but no big picture

I liked very much The Second World War, and thought that WWI would be similar. But it focuses mainly on what Churchill himself was involved- The Drdanells campain. Telegrms between generals are described in detail, whereas the global picture of the war id not mentioned.

Did not like reader

What would have made The World Crisis - 1911-1918, Part Two better?

I am afraid to say the reader or readers tried to sound like Churchill. No good. spoiled the book for me. Have you tried Tim Piggot Smith as a reader? he does a brilliant job.

Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Christian Rodska?

Tim Piggot Smith
