In December the third member of 'The Grand Alliance' stepped from the background with the infamous attack of Pearl Harbour. Now Churchill knew in his heart that ultimate victory surely lay with Britain, the United States, and Russia, but the continuing pain, sacrifice, and toll of blood and machine were still to be borne. The overview is read by Winston S Churchill, MP, and the volume narrated by Michael Jayston.

Annoying, gratuitous soundtrack
What would have made Winston S. Churchill: The History of the Second World War, Volume 3 - The Grand Alliance better?
I really loved listening to volumes 1 and 2, but volume 3 adds a hokey musical soundtrack during dramatic events. It is too loud to tune out, so it's very annoying. So much so, that I have stopped listening to it. I'm really disappointed. I was looking forward to listening to all the volumes, but will not if they are like this one. I don't understand why the producers added this loud, very cliched soundtrack. The narrative is dramatic enough. Nothing else is needed.
What did you like best about this story?
This is a great historical account.
Have you listened to any of Michael Jayston’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
He is excellent.
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Winston S. Churchill: The History of the Second World War, Volume 3 - The Grand Alliance?
I would have cut out the loud, distracting music.
Any additional comments?
Would audible consider providing a version of these volumes without the soundtrack?
