Five Came Back – Mark Harris

Five Came Back – A Story of Hollywood and the Second World War written by Mark Harris and narrated by Andrew Garman is available at Amazon and Audible.com. 

This Audiobook is 20 hours of great insight and history of film during WWII. It chronicles the lives of five directors who left Hollywood at the height of their careers to join the military. They documented the war on film as well as made training videos and propaganda films.

The insight that these men had as well as the studios who hedged their bets against both sides of the war is an incredible look at business during wartime as well as sacrifice made.

You know the films, now look behind them to see the psychological impact war had on their creators and how it affected their filmmaking. If you like film of war history this book will grab your interest. Also many of the war films they speak of in this book are available to view on YouTube.  This is a great audiobook that grabs the listeners attention and takes them behind the camera during WWII.

I purchased this book for my own pleasure.
