It was a bit slow-going to start. The beginning was slow, I think, just because that part of WWII was slow. Ed Murrow was such a great journalist and I like how he could give a fairly unbiased report. Once I got into mid-1940, things really picked up (London was bombed) and the pace was... exciting, if you can say that about destruction. Overall I really enjoyed reading his radio broadcasts and it was a great book for getting the brief history of WWII from start to spring of '41.

Murrow really had a way with language, and became my hero when I read this as a starry-eyed high school girl dreaming of becoming an international correspondent.
