TURNING THE TIDE How a Small Band of Allied Sailors Defeated the U-Boats and Won the Battle of the Atlantic

by | Read by James Adams

History • 17.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2011

British narrator James Adams narrates this meticulously researched account of the struggle for control of Atlantic shipping routes during WWII. Ultimately, it’s a narrative of the Allied victory over the German U-boats, and Adams gives it a straightforward rendering. When presented with the occasional quotation, he does not vary his vocal qualities, though that does not detract from the work. A problem is the author’s relentless use of military nomenclature referencing ships, aircraft, and convoys, particularly his repetitive use of categorizations and specifications regarding the numerous vessels and weapons in the story. In an audio format the jargon, which will be unknown to many listeners, becomes monotonous and confusing. S.K.G. © AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2011]
