Nice cross-section of old radio news from WW2

After looking around for some streams of radio broadcasts from WW2, I came across this title in the "Daily Deal" eBay section. It was priced right, and even if the CD's didn't have all I wanted in terms of detailed news and whatnot (some of the CDs are "period" placeholders to give you a sense of atmosphere), I knew this would be at least a start for my old radio collection. (Having already gotten the famous "War of the Worlds" broadcast with my anniversary copy of the book, I wanted more vintage radio...)

If you're a history buff or you were alive during WW2, this collection provides a really good snapshot of the events and coverage that led up to WW2 as well as the major theaters. There is a "tribute to FDR" that was broadcast shortly after his death on these CDs as well. The CDs themselves are usually one long track or quite a few large tracks, but that doesn't detract from the listening. (If you're handy with an audio editor, you can track them out easily with proper station breaks and the like.... I might try that later myself.) This is a cheap set and at 20 CDs, you won't be bored.

Very accurate.

An interesting collection of news stories (radio) from WWII. I only wish my uncle could have listened before he died, as it was a new perspective. (He never wanted to visit Normandy Beach as he said "he'd been there before and it didn't go so well". It would have been interesting to hear his interpretation as opposed to the press. Excellent price for such an interesting piece of history.

All you ever wanted to know about WAR,

I am a history buff, and the history of this country has to include the war we fought. I purchased this 20 CD presentation of WW2 to better understand this time in history, and a war that ended when I was five years old. I haven't seen them all yet, but so far the CD's are very interesting and informative. I feel I made a very small financial investment and received a very large part of our history.

quality and honest review of product is easy to find

I have found a few good deals on e-bay/u-bid/overstock/buy.com and other places. I can honestly say, this was the best deal I have gotten yet. 20 cds and the quality of all the discs are fantastic. I'm not old enough to be around WWII but I am old enough to appreciate the past history and remember seeing old film clips. Its nice to lay back in bed when I turn in for the night and put in a disc or two and just take myself to another time. Great product.

The Greatest Conflict CDS

I thought it was DVD's as I didn't read the daily deal correctly. Still happy with product in CD format. I think it is a great concept for recreating the radio accounts of WWII.
