listened to this on a very long road trip, and enjoyed it thoroughly. The author did a great job tying in the story of the team with the story of Joe Rantz, which makes it feel much more personal. Would definitely recommend. Narrator was great!
This was a great and inspiring story. I can't believe I hadn't heard I'd it before. The book is well written and the narrator does a great job bringing it to life.
I have read this book and now listened to to it on Audible. It is a story of triumph and tenacity. There is a lot to be learned from these amazing young men!
Enjoyable, though a little heavy on technical rowing details early on, the story of these young men's lives was well told and characters nicely developed.
The narration was excellent most of the time, but I found myself angry, even yelling at my car dashboard, each of the many times the narrator mispronounced the names of cities in Washington. For heaven's sake! Do your homework!
Not recommended. How long would it have taken the narrator to call the 10 or so cities mentioned and ask how to pronounce their respective names. I live here and had trouble deciphering his what cities he was actually trying to pronounce.
Love this narrator and the story pulls you in and it's hard to stop listening.
Just listen and don't plan much for the rest of the day!

The book is a beautiful and moving tribute to human spirit
The epilogue is perhaps Best part of the book so I urge all to listen fully to the end
An inspiring book that embodies and anticipates World War Two. Coming of age in a very challenging age. I now understand why this is called the Greatest Generation.
