Description

Macmillan Digital Audio are delighted to introduce a brand new format for audio book lovers everywhere. Word Play is an incredibly light and portable pre-loaded player which means you can 'plug and play' your favourite audiobooks anywhere in the world. The player runs off a standard AAA battery so they are easily re-chargeable and they come with a free set of headphones so you can start listening to your audio books straight away.For many of those who lived through it, the Second World War was the most exciting, dynamic and frightening time of their lives. "Last Letters Home" is a wonderful collection of contemporary letters that tells their stories - from the battlefields of Europe to the bombed out back streets of London, from the conflict in the skies to the hardships of the home front."Spitfire Ace" reintroduces the few that flew in the Battle of Britain and includes interviews with many of the surviving veteran Spitfire pilots. Combined with a historical narrative of the events surrounding the Battle of Britain, you will learn for the first time what it was really like to fly a Spitfire and to experience combat flying at its most visceral." The Isles" is the controversial history of the 'British Isles', including Ireland. Emphasizing our long-standing European connections and positing a possible break-up of the United Kingdom, this is agenda-setting work is destined to become a classic.show more
