9780099459507: The Volunteers

They were the men and women of the Royal Navy's Special Operations units. Carrying out lightning raids on hostile coasts, they became a navy within a navy—each handpicked for their individual skills, and all of them courageous. Against the mighty backdrop of World War II they performed their small but deadly operations—living often beyond hope, sometimes beyond mercy. This is the dramatic story of a handful of such people. The Volunteers.

About the Author:

Douglas Reeman served in the Royal Navy in the Atlantic and Mediterranean campaigns during World War Two. He has written 37 novels under his own name as well as 28 novels featuring Richard and Adam Bolitho under the pseudonym Alexander Kent.

From AudioFile:

The first bang is heard as Allenby, a WWII London bomb defuser, suffers a failure by blowing up his assistant, Sgt. Hazel. We follow the hero through dangerous operations, punctuated by hot tea at four and a low-key infatuation with Hazel's sister. David Rintoul adds welcome color to a black and white 1943 romance by producing different voices for each character. He imbues expletives with excitement by shouting them and foreigners with authenticity by giving them accents, even barking like an English aristocrat. The reader's imaginative theatrical treatment makes the audiobook exceed the novel as entertainment. J.A.H. © AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
