A people’s war

What I got from the book was a very good sense of how the ordinary people not just military people were affected and suffered in this time.
Dan uses lots of quotes from mass observations on what people were thinking and talking about at the time. As he points out in this audible interview we normally read about the war from many different perspectives not a single integrated view. I am anxious to read volume two.

Garbled "BBC-speak"

I just did not find that this interview added much to my interest in reading the book, plus the fact that it is conducted in garbled "BBC-speak"--despite the fact that I studied in England and am accustomed to British accents, nevertheless, I found the interview difficult to understand clearly and to follow.
