    The U.S. experienced its most harrowing military disaster of World War II not in 1941 at Pearl Harbor, but rather in the period from 1942 to 1943, in the frigid North Atlantic and American coastal waters from Newfoundland to the Caribbean. Nearly seven decades after the event, the Battle of the Atlantic still stands as the longest-running and most lethal clash of arms in naval history.

    What disappointed you about Turning the Tide?

    I am frustrated that this work focuses primarily on one singular battle in the north Atlantic, rather than how the combined efforts of the Allies used technology and tenacity to defeat the German Wolfpacks. Secondly, the narration is (in a stuffy English accent)


    Would you be willing to try another book from Ed Offley? Why or why not?

    Certainly. He focuses on facts and details, which is nice.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of James Adams?

    I think hearing Nelson Runger read this work would be terrific.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Duh, disappointment.

  • The Pursuit of Holiness

    "Be holy, for I am holy," commands God to His people. But holiness is something that is often missed in the Christian's daily life. According to Jerry Bridges, that's because we're not exactly sure what our part in holiness is. In The Pursuit of Holiness, he helps us see clearly just what we should rely on God to do-and what we should accept responsibility for ourselves.

    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I love this book and have read it in print format before. I purchased it here to make reviewing it easier. The narrator's voice grates so badly that I cannot focus on the message he is reading. I neecd to pursue a refund on this one.
