On February 3, 1943, a German U-boat fired a torpedo into the side of the SS DORCHESTER off Greenland. Among those who lost their lives were the men now known as the Four Immortal Chaplains, four men of different faiths known for their work in bringing people together who gave up their own life jackets to save others. Their story is one that raises thoughts about the meaning of a good life. Tone carries a lot of weight in William Dufris's reading. He doesn't do individual voices but ably sets the appropriate mood with inflection, whether he's voicing a wife's memories of her late husband or an official report. The package bears the men's likenesses as seen at the Pentagon Chapel. J.A.S. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 04/ JAN 05]
