    Russell Crenshaw's riveting account of the savage night battle for the Solomon Islands in early 1943 offers listeners a unique insider's perspective from the decks of one of the destroyers that bore the brunt of the struggle.

    Bruce Kent says: "Great History - Hard Listen."

    Story

    Cannot recommend - this is the first book I have not been able to finish - as another reader remarked the narrator is horrible. Despite trying to infuse his own interpretation of drama, his narration actually comes off as annoying. Too bad, liked the premise but couldn't stand listening to the reader.

  • Through These Portals: A Pacific War Saga

    Story
    (17)

    This remarkably immediate memoir tells of the U.S Army's essential role in the Pacific campaigns alongside the Navy and Marine Corps. America's sons, born in the first quarter of the 20th century, were forged in the twin crucibles of the Great Depression and World War II. The values and attitudes of these mostly idealistic young males ultimately sustained them in horrific trials against incredibly courageous, and often suicidally-committed, Japanese soldiers blindly loyal to their superior officers and the Emperor.

    Story

    The story was fine, I had to stop listening because the narrator was so distracting
    His speech pattern and odd pronunciation mad this the first book in years I have not finished.

    When Navy SEAL Adam Brown woke up on March 17, 2010, he didn’t know he would die that night in the Hindu Kush Mountains of Afghanistan - but he was ready: In a letter to his children, not meant to be seen unless the worst happened, he wrote, "I’m not afraid of anything that might happen to me on this earth, because I know no matter what, nothing can take my spirit from me."

    Donnie Cooper says: "touching. very touching."

  • Good to Go: The Life and times of a Decorated Member of the U.S. Navy's Elite Seal Team Two

    Good to Go is Constance's powerful, firsthand account of his three tours of duty as a member of America's most elite, razor-sharp stealth fighting force. It is a breathtaking memoir of harrowing missions and covert special-ops - from the floodplains of the Mekong Delta to the beaches of the South China Sea - that places the listener in the center of bloody ambushes and devastating firefights. But Constance's extraordinary adventure goes even farther - beyond 'Nam.

    Scott says: "A spirited story of courage and determination"
    "Good action, too long"

    Story

    Accounts of Constance ' s growth into SEALS and action were excellent. His personal story took up an inordinate amount of the story and was pretty self-serving. Book would have been better at about 2/3 the b length.
