    Gallipoli 1915

    By Joseph Murray, Malcolm Hamilton
    Authors:
    Joseph Murray
    Read by:
    Malcolm Hamilton
    The Gallipoli Campaign stands out as a landmark in the history of the First World War, and it was perhaps the most controversial action; it certainly ended in tragedy. Joseph Murray was among the 400,000 British and Commonwealth troops taking part, and he served as a naval rating turned soldier in Hood Battalion of the Royal Naval Division. Gallipoli 1915 is based on a diary he kept at the time and his later letters home.The Battle of Gallipoli was a war of nerves, largely played out underground in the tunnels constantly being built by either side. Joseph Murray's unflinching and compelling account gives us an insight into the daily life of a First World War soldier, as well as providing an eye-witness report of the horrors and tragedy of the conflict.

    The Grapes Of Wrath

    By John Steinbeck, John Chancer
    Authors:
    John Steinbeck
    Read by:
    John Chancer
    Shocking and controversial when it was first published in 1939, Steinbeck's Pulitzer prize-winning epic remains his undisputed masterpiece. Set against the background of dust bowl Oklahoma and Californian migrant life, it tells of the Joad family, who, like thousands of others, are forced to travel West in search of the promised land. Their story is one of false hopes, thwarted desires and broken dreams, yet out of their suffering Steinbeck created a drama that is intensely human, yet majestic in its scale and moral vision; an eloquent tribute to the endurance and dignity of the human spirit.
