History and theater create a suspenseful mix in David Haig’s dramatic tale based on the true lead-up to D-Day. AudioFile contributor Brian Price tells host Jo Reed about a favorite way to experience the drama of a theatrical production at home — with audiobook listening. A Scottish meteorologist is summoned to the headquarters of the Allied forces on the eve of the D-Day invasion of Normandy. He must convince Eisenhower that they face two enemies—the Nazis and the fickle English weather, which could doom their expedition to failure. The dialogue is tense and convincing as British actor Jonathan Cake leads a stellar cast. Riveting. Published by L.A. Theatre Works
