Snap-shot of pivotal historical moments.

Awesome audio recordings of famous and infamous speeches. Some of the men and women need no introduction, however many of those who are NOT history 'buffs' will not be benefited by the lack-luster composition.

A pretty straight forward piece of work that, unfortunately , really suffers from lack of context. I.e: who is speaking, date of the speech and the context of the current political and social situation.

Still, it is worthy of your purchase. But, let it be the beginning of your attempt in understanding recent historical events and not the end of it.
