Featuring Amazon2

All Shook Up: How Rock and Roll Changed America is an interesting look at the time frame in which rock and roll was introduced in America and the change that ensued. To understand the cultural history of America in the 1950-1960 time frame, this is an important facet to study. This book is available at Amazon2 for $9.44.

We Shall Not Sleep by Anne Perry is another in her series centered in World War I.  Perry explores the venues of the war and its impact on the people involved through the members of one family, and their different stories. This is an unabridged audiobook on CD. It's $19.94 on Amazon2.
