    On the morning of October 24, 1944, in the Sibuyan Sea amidst the Philippine Islands, VT-18, a close-knit squadron of six young American torpedo bomber pilots, departed the aircraft carrier USS Intrepid on a search and destroy mission. Their target: the super-battleship Musashi, the pride of the Imperial Japanese Navy. The pilots were tasked with preventing the immense enemy warship and the huge naval armada of which she was a part from inflicting unspeakable damage.

    What did you love best about Intrepid Aviators?

    The book was written and documented with a good deal of accuracy. Don Hagen did a great job of narration. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in WW II aviation.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    N/A


    Have you listened to any of Don Hagen’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is the first of Mr. Hagen's books that I have heard, I will definitely look for more of his accomplishments in the future.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    It was indeed hard to put down, it made looking forward to the next chapter something to look forward to.

  • American Sniper: The Autobiography of the Most Lethal Sniper in U.S. Military History

    From 1999 to 2009, U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle recorded the most career sniper kills in United States military history. The Pentagon has officially confirmed more than 150 of Kyles kills (the previous American record was 109), but it has declined to verify the astonishing total number for this book. Iraqi insurgents feared Kyle so much they named him al-Shaitan ("the devil") and placed a bounty on his head.

    T. Edwards says: "Tremendously Enlightening, could not put it down"
    "A book second to no other"

    What made the experience of listening to American Sniper the most enjoyable?

    The narrator did a great job in presenting the story, I will watch for any of his presentations in the future. Was well versed in terminology and presented a great story.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Chris Kyle was beyond a doubt a finely tuned character. His love of the job and dedication to duty made him and effective sniper. A person who was defecated to his country and the task at hand.


    Which character – as performed by John Pruden – was your favorite?

    Again the main character Chris Kyle.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I listen to the audio every day to and from work, I often found myself sitting in the lot waiting for the chapter to end. An absolutely riveting story. Sad as it was to have the passing of Chris Kyle, during my listening experience.


    Any additional comments?

    The few negative comments made about Mr. Kyle, came I am sure from folks who did not or ever will understand the dedication to duty, or what it takes to deal with this job. There has to be a love and clear understanding for what you have to do. This is obviously not an occupation for anyone less inclined.
