SHADOW DIVERS The True Adventures of Two Americans Who Risked Everything to Solve One of the Last Mysteries of World War II

by | Read by Campbell Scott

Contemporary Culture • 6 hrs. • Abridged • © 2004

This epic account of the discovery, by two recreational scuba divers, of a German U-boat more than 200 feet below the Atlantic's surface, off the New Jersey coast, is more than the recounting of an unusual exploit. Blending history, science, and technology, this intellectual odyssey is dappled with the human element, so vital to the tale of sometimes rivals who band together to find answers to questions no one would have imagined asking. There is an ominous tone to this story of discovery and loss, a looming sense of danger. Listeners cannot help but be riveted by actor-director Campbell Scott's clipped, sonorous, authoritative narration, which fits so perfectly with a chronicle set largely in the ocean's depths. M.J.B.
