ONE BULLET AWAY The Making of a Marine Officer

by | Read by Andy Paris

Biography & Memoir • 16.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2005

Fick, a Dartmouth graduate who was commissioned in 1999, served as a platoon leader of infantry and reconnaissance units in both Afghanistan after 9/11 and in Iraq during the invasion in 2003, eventually being promoted to captain. His memoir of his initiation into the Corps and his warrior service is a skillfully written account of modern combat. Andy Paris is a perfect match for this work. His calm delivery is highly expressive. He portrays drill instructors, both United States and British Royal Marine, splendidly and is just as competent with the many other characters. He can even sing the "Marines' Hymn" pretty well, too. M.T.F. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 06]
