Any additional comments?

So pleased I found this weekly series on Podcasts and never missed a show. Purchased the series as soon as I found it on Audiobooks. A yarn of a storyline for all who enjoy history brought to life. The acting is so good the listener feels they have gone back in time into the scary world of 1914-18 during the First Wolrd War. Life was so different for men, women, children and foreigners. The show tells it like it was for those left behind at home trying to live a normal life as their men were sent out to fight in what we now know was one of the most horrific wars where hundreds of thousands of mens lives were uneccessarly slaughtered within minutes of enterring the war zone.
