Eighty interviews used as research for this biography, including quotes from the officer's fitness reports and letters from home, are pasted together, to form the narrative. Audiophiles' imaginations are required to combine the research into an understanding of the famous prisoner. Michael Prichard's voice is clear and crisp as always, but he reads all the comments in the same manner, challenging listeners to keep track of the constantly changing sources, even though each is identified in the text. While the story is somewhat slow at first, one's interest level rises as captivity takes its toll on the principal subject. J.A.H. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 02]
