Penguin presents the audiobook edition of War by Roald Dahl, read by Dan Stevens, Cillian Murphy, Sophie Okonedo, Julian Rhind-Tutt and Stephen Mangan.

There’s a whole world of Dahl still to discover in a newly collected audiobook of his deliciously dark tales for adults . . .

In war, are we at our heroic best or our cowardly worst? Featuring the autobiographical stories from Roald Dahl’s time as a fighter pilot in the Second World War as well as seven other tales of conflict and strife, Dahl reveals the human side of our most inhumane activity.

Among other stories, you’ll read about the pilot shot down in the Libyan desert, the fighter plane that vanishes inside a mysterious thick white cloud and the soldier who returns from war but has been shockingly changed by his experiences.

Featuring extraordinary cover art by Charming Baker, whose paintings echo the dark and twisted world of Dahl’s short stories.

Roald Dahl reveals even more about the darker side of human nature in seven other centenary editions: Lust, Madness, Cruelty, Deception, Trickery, Innocence and Fear.
