A Naval Institute Press Audio Book (P)1997 by the Naval Institute Press; From the Book Crossing the Line: A Bluejacket's World War II Odyssey by Alvin Kernan ©1994 by the United States Naval Institute
"One of the most arresting naval autobiographies." (John Keegan)
"The best war narratives tell you not only what happened but how it felt, and not only the great events but the ordinary ones. Crossing the Line is like that." (Samuel Hynes)
This account of submarine life during WWII has an amazing scope in that the author was there for many momentous events. If you enjoy submarines and WWII, this is a good listen. However, by all means listen to Silent Running first. It is written more as an adventure WWII submarine story and is wonderful.
The narration for this book is OK, but not my favorite. Listen to the sample. It gets better, but that will give you a flavor.
