Full Speed Ahead: Tales From The Log Of A Correspondent by Henry Beston (1888 - 1968).

All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/full-speed-ahead-tales-from-the-log-of-a-correspondent-by-henry-beston/
“These tales are memories of several months spent as a special correspondent attached to the forces of the American Navy on foreign service…. {I have} been content to chronicle the interesting incidents of the daily life as well as the achievements and heroisms of the friends who keep the highways of the sea…. I would not end without a word of thanks to the enlisted men for their unfailing good will and ever courteous behaviour.” Henry Beston (1888-1968) was an American author. In 1918, Beston became a press representative for the U.S. Navy. Highlights from this period include being the only American correspondent to travel with the British Grand Fleet and to be aboard an American destroyer during combat engagement and sinking during World War I. This 1919 book describes these experiences. Lists of names have been omitted from the Preface. ( Book Preface, Wikipedia, David Wales)
  • Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/60196
  • Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard



    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!
