Well, if you like history about WWII then this is another book to listen to. It is nice to gain perspective from many sides of this most historic era. Churchill's resounding skill to keep the country "up" while dealing with the atrocities and damaging nature of the war make him seem impenetrable.
What other book might you compare Winston S. Churchill: The History of the Second World War, Volume 1 - The Gathering Storm to and why?
Right now I am reading the Grey Wolf about the route the Nazi Party was taking, and namely Hitler and his entourage, were taking amid raping everything and everyone of their right to be a human on earth and the pillaging of loot and art from anyone to satisfy the needs of the Nazis during the war. Also, the interesting aspect of what really happened to Mr. Adolf at war's end. What really happened to him and others who provoked and carried out their wild scheme.
Have you listened to any of Michael Jayston’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
too many to think of one.

Having listened to many factual accounts of WWII, this was a next logical step for my listening. The first book in this 5 book series seems too short for the cost of it, and it goes without saying that the slant given is very pro-english, regardless of the attacks he makes at the preparedness of the nation and the appeasement policies of the time.
Still, already from one book I have recorded some masterful quotes and I'll end this with one. And if you can digest the fact that you will hear a decidedly biased account of events, you will still find a very good and impressive accounting of events.
-The human mind, except when guided by extraordinary genius, cannot surmount the established conclusions upon which is has been reared.
