Kershaw details the journey of the U.S.S. TANG submarine across the Pacific during WWII and its crew's ultimate capture and torture by the Japanese. Narrator Richard Poe delivers a powerful reading that makes the TANG and its crew the central focus of the listener's attention. Poe makes each character as real and honest as the last; the crew members are stern, commanding, and terrified. With strong resolve and steady pacing, Poe lets the story unfold in a matter-of-fact tone that brings a sense of authenticity and drama that propels the listener to the heart-wrenching climax. Poe never ceases to impress, commanding the listener’s attention from start to finish. L.B. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/NOV 08]
