There is a sense of integrity and honor that carries through this audiobook about fathers and sons, soldiers and country. Written by Chicago Tribune and Life magazine columnist Bob Greene, Duty recounts his experiences during the last few days of his father's life. It is at this time that Greene learns about a past he never knew his father had: his involvement in one of the most horrifying wartime acts of all time--the 1945 bombing of Hiroshima. With his authoritative and steady voice, reader Denis deBoisblanc brings to Greene's memoir an appropriately journalistic bent. His narration is not without feeling, though, and this helps to flesh out the piece, reminding listeners that duty to country and love of family can--and often do--coexist.
