Mystery & Suspense • 9.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1969

How does a 50-ton Matilda tank named Bert stay hidden? By becoming unhappily entrapped in a railroad tunnel during an air raid, and then by moving carefully across hundreds of miles of French countryside behind German lines all the way to Calais. There, this lonesome British tank finally emerges to blow up a Nazi ammunition dump and its full complement of Panzers. Barrett adeptly represents the English, Canadian and Anglicized French and German accents of the all-male military cast of characters. His skillful reading heightens the tension of this World War II thriller and keeps the listener anxious to hear what happens next, rooting for Bert throughout the tale.
