RAISING THE HUNLEY The Remarkable History and Recovery of the Lost Confederate Submarine

by | Read by Harry Chase

History • 7 hrs. • Abridged • © 2002

The Confederate government built the world's first attack submarine during the Civil War, and it sank after its only victory. This story of THE HUNLEY starts at its the construction and ends with the recent discovery of the captain's good-luck gold coin still in his pocket. Familiar authors like Jules Verne and Clive Cussler make dramatic appearances. The narrator makes history more dramatic by using accents for quoted material and prolonging phrases like "discovering a human rib cage. . ." With no pictures of the craft, the audiobook challenges our visual imagery of what people called the "fishboat" but creates an otherwise thorough telling of the first chapter in submarine warfare.
