Hubbard often drew on his own real life experience when writing his stories and he actually was involved in World War II although he was in the Navy not the Marines. Hubbard wrote many, many stories involving wars and battles but, as in the case of <I><b>Fifty-Fifty O’Brien</b></I>, those wars are of his own devising rather than the wars of actual history. Still it is clear that he is writing from experience when describing the inner workings of the military.
This 2-disk set also includes the military adventures <I>The Adventure of X</I>, in which a French Foreign Legionnaire’s intelligence mission leads him into an enemy ambush, and he has to warn his fellow Legionnaires before they walk into a massacre; and <I>Red Sand</I>, the story of a disgraced Chicago cop who joins the Legionnaires and finds his investigative skills invaluable in the desert.
These are just three of the literally hundreds of short stories L Ron Hubbard wrote during the pulp era of the 1930’s and 40’s. Galaxy Audio is collecting many of those stories and bringing them to life in stunning audio quality, featuring beautifully rendered music and sound effects and a very talented cast of voice actors. On this set you’ll hear the voices of R F Daley, Taron Lexton, Corey Burton, Jim Meskimen, Shane Johnson, Phil Proctor, and Jason Harris. These are some of the more talented voices in the industry, some of them playing multiple roles although you’d never know it was the same actor. If you haven’t tried one of these then I highly recommend it. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.
