http://www.audible.com/pd/History/Heroes-Beneath-the-Waves-Audiobook/B01ATPCEJU Please listen. It was an honor to have this book created as an audible book for those who can't see to read. I loved listening to it; of course I cried as my heroes stories touched my heart. I am thankful to all, who contributed to this book. I keep saying my book, but it is not..., it is our book.
