PURSUIT The Sinking of the Bismarck

by | Read by Lodovic Kennedy

History • 8.4 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1974

The author's throat creaks and crackles as he recounts the eight-day pursuit leading to the 1941 sinking of the BISMARCK, one of Germany's greatest battleships during WWII. Kennedy's sandpaper voice adds a patina of authenticity, as if he were describing events he had seen himself; his artful suspense creates a thriller more compelling and exciting than any fiction. Four thousand men die as ships sink in burning oil and exploding missiles. Like a movie, the scene switches from aircraft cockpit to German submarine conning tower to the HMS PRINCE OF WALES wireless room. Warning: don't think it will be easy to stop this story in the middle. J.A.H. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 02]
