9781402202476: World War II on the Air with CD: Edward R. Murrow and the War That Defined a Generation

"A fascinating read that, paired with the historic recordings, gives a thrilling sense of what it was like for Americans at home following the war in their living rooms."-Library Journal

"High-level drama"-Indianapolis Star

"Highly recommended."-Choice

The story of World War II was told first not by historians, but by reporters. And no one told that story with more impact than Edward R. Murrow and the remarkable band of reporters he assembled.
World War II on the Air recounts the dramatic stories behind these extraordinary correspondents. And it lets you hear their actual broadcasts, culled from the archives and collected here-many for the first time-on audio CD, narrated by Dan Rather.

The Story of World War II Was Told First Not by Historians, but by Reporters.
?and no one told that story with more impact than Edward R. Murrow and the remarkable band of reporters he assembled.
World War II on the Air recounts the dramatic stories behind these extraordinary correspondents. And it lets you hear their actual broadcasts, culled from the archives and collected here many for the first time on audio CD, narrated by Dan Rather.
When war broke out, there was no TV, no satellites, no Internet to spread the news. There was radio. Murrow and his fellow CBS radio correspondents reported directly to listeners as news unfolded. They invented a new kind of reporting while bringing the events of the war into America's living rooms from capitals and battlefields all over the world.
Hear the history of the war through more than 50 broadcasts, including reports from:
--a rooftop looking out over London as German bombers buzzed the skies, to
--a clearing in a forest where Hitler was laying down the terms of France's surrender
--a Normandy beach on D-Day
--soldiers parachuting from a C-47 into Holland
--a street battle in a crumbling German city before the Battle of the Bulge
Experience World War II as it happened with the reporters who lived it and the broadcasts that defined the war for a nation.
