Holiday Gift Guide: The Smartypants Dad
"NPR American Chronicles: World War II"
History-loving dads will appreciate this intimate look at the Second World War. NPR culled first-person accounts from their archives and packaged them together in remembrances of Pearl Harbor, the London Blitz, the Battle of the Bulge, Normandy, the droppings of the atomic bombs, and other key events during the war. It's three hours on 3 CDs, which is perfect for a dad with a long commute. [NPR, $24.95]
