America, Empire of Liberty: Empire and Evil v. 3 (BBC Audio)

America, Empire of Liberty: Empire and Evil v. 3 (BBC Audio) - David Reynolds This third volume in David Reynolds' radio history of the United States covers the period from the end of World War 2 to the start of the Obama Presidency.

After the slightly mixed bag of Volume 2, this is back to the standard of Volume 1. A strong, clear narrative that gripped me and made me want to stay engaged, listening to episode after episode.

Highly recommended.
