US History for Tweens and Teens
Another great installment by Hakim. And the narrator is one of the best. The Nazi period is of course very tough going, but important. My 13 year old still counts this series as one of his favorites on audio, and enjoyed hearing about World War II.
The later installments in the series are most suitable for tweens, less so for older teens and adults. For me, the events are more familiar and the author's opinions are more grating. Still, it is a great series for young teens and tweens. Anything that makes history a favorite request is a win!

Perfect For Kids
Although the blurb for the book says readers from 9 to 99 it's more appropriate for under 17. That said, both the author and reader do a magificent job of bringing this era to life. For adults, if you can get through the abundance of rhetorical questions ("What do YOU think about that?") and don't mind definitions of words like "totalitarian" you'll be pleasantly surpised. Both my daughters (ages 9 and 12), however, absolutely love this volume and are insisting on getting the others.
