The Story of World War II Was Told First Not by Historians, but by Reporters. and no one told that story with more impact than Edward R. Murrow and the remarkable band of reporters he assembled.

Mark Bernstein, Alex Lubertozzi. Included with the book is a CD narrated by former CBS journalist Dan Rather, which includes excerpts from 51 wartime broadcasts. World War II on the Air: Edward R. Murrow and the Broadcasts That Riveted a Nation. Of the group of CBS reporters known as "Murrow's Boys," after their leader, Edward R. Murrow, only Richard C. Hottelet, at 88, is still living. While their real voices have been silenced, their recorded voices will stay with us forever.

The audio CD is the reason I picked up the book and it's disappointing. It runs just over an hour but about half The text is well-written and engaging. The book focuses on the career of Edward Murrow and a handful of other key reporters that worked for CBS just before and during WW II. The focus is exclusively CBS and almost exclusively the European Theater. The focus is not the way so much as the development of war reporting on the radio. Given these limits, the book itself is great. The audio CD is the reason I picked up the book and it's disappointing

What was it like when news was real news; in this case both the uneasy times and the glorious days of World War II? There was no TV, no Internet and no social media. As a kid during the war, you read newspapers and listened to the radio -- and your imagination did the rest. The disc is war news in the raw -- as related by real reporters, not by the news readers of today's electronic media. The book is an excellent account of journalism and journalists in their finest era.

I bought this used through amazon. Paid less that $5. Imagine my surprise that the book included a cd of the radio recordings! Book was in excellent condition. Fascinating account of Edward R Murrow, et al, and their determination to broadcast the war news. At times, quite dangerous for them. Excellent book. Definitely worth buying this book.

Excellent book and CD. Be careful I had to order this twice from different suppliers to get the CD with the book. I would have liked longer versions of the various broadcasts but the quality is excellent.

There is only one reason to buy this book--for the CD. I found the book to be poorly written, bland and superficial. Of course, I had just finished reading "Citizens of London.." by Lynne Olsen, which is one of the best books I have ever read, period. I kept thinking to myself when I read "World War II On the Air:..." that it was written for middle schoolers. Honestly, I'm glad I didn't pay too much it. So, if you want to listen to the voices of radio from WWII, buy this book, but read "The Murrow Boys" by Olsen or "Citizens of London" for the history.

The book itself was fine. I wanted it because it was supposed to come with a CD of Edward R. Murrow's broadcasts from London. The CD was missing.

I was raised during this war and remember well Edward R Murrow's broadcast from London - as well as those of "his Boys". It's a great book. It and the CD are real "keepers".

I bought this as a gift for my stepdad who is interested in all things World War II, and I could tell by his reaction as he read it that it wasn't the most engrossing material he'd ever read.
Wonderful reporting at all levels -- the reports on the war itself, especially the audio files included on the CD, and the story of how those reports were developed and received.
