Words of War was an anthology of war stories, "told by the men and women who have seen them happen." It was produced in cooperation with the Council on Books in Wartime, promising "stories of the battlefronts, of behind-the-scenes diplomacy, of underground warfare, of the home front, of action on the seas." Each show was to be "a living record of this war and things for which we fought."

Good stuff

Nice that at one time radio was made to go over important topics and inform the public... the easily digested "dialogue" I've come across with the ones I've listened to here are very good- and many of the topics are still important today.

No Reader (or Listener) From 9 to 90, should miss "Adventure Stories"!

I'm so glad to have found this podcast, and the only way I can think to promote it is by word of mouth or by writing a review that could express my excitement.

James Fenimore Cooper's Leatherstockings Tales brings early frontier days alive - when the "frontier" was just beyond the Hudson River. Have you read or seen "The Last of the Mohicans"? If so, you'll have an idea of the beauty and color with which Mr. Cooper has woven his stories.

Hurrah! to Dennis Murphy for bringing these our attention, and making them available to all listeners. On behalf of my grandchidren, I thank you, and wish much continued success in these podcasts :o)
