It is May 1940. The British army has been routed and is awaiting its evacuation. Winston Churchill asks Holmes to stand by to provide advice on what steps to take in the face of the anticipated aerial onslaught of the Luftwaffe on British airfields. As German attacks mount, Holmes offers unpalatable advice which Churchill accepts for want of an alternative. As German attacks switch from the airfields to production facilities, Holmes provides additional detective advice on a most unexpected matter. But it is the use to which Churchill puts the advice, which creates a rift between the two men, which remains unresolved at the end of the story.A thought-provoking mixture of detection and morality. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Steve White. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/124219/bk_acx0_124219_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

On the morning of 24th February 1944 following a devastating Luftwaffe raid, Donald Wheal and his family were homeless refugees with bulging suitcases and faces blackened by soot blast. In World's End, the first part of his bestselling childhood autobiography, he told of his upbringing during the Blitz in the rough working class community which was Chelsea's World's End. The morning after the World¹s End bombing he realized that the ties that had bound him to the past were now broken -- a new world and a new fate awaited him.In White City he tells the story of how his family, now menaced by the V-bombs and rockets that were the last stage of London's war, were re-settled in an anonymous London suburb where later his adolescence was to begin amidst post war privation, sexual yearning and first love. In these dark years the quest for new experiences took him all around Britain and finally to war-ravaged France. A testing period of National Service in Germany and Italy completed his journey to adulthood. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Michael Jayston.

Luftwaffe pilots fear one weapon more than any other: British Spitfires. Powerful Rolls Royce engines and an ingenious design make the plane fast and manoeuvrable. In 1940, Spitfires and their fearless pilots resist Hitler's attempts to bomb Britain to submission. The fighter's success forces Germany's leaders to develop even more powerful weapons. London is targeted by V-1 and V-2 bombs, forerunners of the Saturn V moon rocket. Meanwhile, on the Eastern Front the supergun Schwerer Gustav fires shells at targets 47 kilometres away. It's the heaviest gun in history at over 1,300 tonnes.Nevertheless, the juggernauts cannot prevent the Nazis' defeat. With new weapons like the Mosquito bomber, designed to be built from a kit, the Allies slowly crush the Third Reich. In 1945, the atomic bomb also forces Japan to raise the white flag. Incredible Weapons explores the war's wildest weapons –including crazy projects like an aircraft carrier built from ice that came close to becoming a reality.
