Torrent description

MEMOIRS OF THE SECOND WORLD WAR (CHAPTERED) by Sir Winston Churchill

fhg MP3, 64Kbps, 44KHz, Mono, CBR
This is a chaptered version of the excellent upload by Paulyearwig.

The Book:
-----------
The original edition was in 6 volumes with 4736 pages, Churchill himself abridged the work to 4 volumes at 1088 pages.
This in turn is the UNABRIDGED reading of Churchill's 4-volume condensed edition.

Churchill's history of the Second World War is, and will remain, the definitive work. Lucid, dramatic, remarkable for its breadth and sweep and for its sense of personal involvement, it is universally acknowledged as a magnificent reconstruction.

The Reader
-----------
Christian Rodska was an excellent choice for this narration. He has a rasp in his voice that holds the interest and adds power to the reading.


The Contents (approx 45 hours):
----------------------
BOOK 1 - MILESTONES TO DISASTER (1919 TO MAY 10 1940)
22 chapters running for 10hours 45minutes

BOOK 2 - ALONE (MAY 10 1940 TO JUNE 22 1941)
22 chapters running for 11hours 9minutes

BOOK 3 - THE GRAND ALLIANCE
22 chapters running for 9hours 55minutes

BOOK 4 - TRIUMPH AND TRAGEDY
29 chapters running for 13hours 54minutes

Editing Notes:
----------------
I found the original files to be indigestible as I do not have the concentration to listen to a monologue for five hours at a stretch, besides I wanted to be able to pick and choose among the chapters.

The chaptering itself was initially not very difficult although the sheer size of the files caused me to take only one book a day.

Each chapter has a 2-second lead and ends with a tiny piano piece.

The original files were at 128Kbps mono which I thought to be too high so reduced to 64Kbps mono and thereby halved the size whilst retaining CD quality.

The volume has been peak-normalised to 78% and is still plenty loud enough.


The files are fully tagged with a little bit of cover art for those that can see it.
(Paulyearwig is recognised in the tag info)


Problems Encountered
--------------------
Whilst chaptering I noticed that I was losing the last 30 seconds or so from each of the 8 originals.
Once the chaptering was done I backtracked to pick up the missing seconds and failed both by editing programs and conversion programs.
The problem was finally solved by splitting off the last 40 minutes of each track and using this as the source for the terminating chapters.
I dont know whether this was a protection device or a convenient method of dropping the final announcement on each book that it was a BBC Audio production :)
