by Bob Dole | Read by Paul Hecht, Cynthia Darlow

Biography & Memoir • 6 hrs. • Abridged • © 2005

Listening to Bob Dole’s personal story, a sobering reminder of the heroism and sacrifices of American servicemen and women during WWII, is visceral and immediate. Severely injured by enemy fire in Italy, Dole returned home to wage a heroic personal war, finally conquering life-threatening injuries and permanent disabilities. Narrator Paul Hecht follows Dole’s career from law school to politics and his distinguished career in the U.S. Senate. Hecht’s narration movingly captures Dole’s feelings as he relates the saga of the senator’s defense of his country and anguishing battle to live a full and meaningful life--although not the one he had planned.
