In "Escape To The Wind", Constitution finds herself in the War of 1812, chased by a squadron of five British Warships. The wind dies down, and the ships are dead in the water, Captain Hull finds a way to distance himself from the superior force. An amazing but true story of Yankee ingenuity!
By culling through the records of the Captain’s logs, the Colonial Radio Theatre brings to life the adventures of the USS Constitution - Old Ironsides!

Simplistic and unrealistic
What would have made The Adventures of Old Ironsides better?
The story is really abbreviated. There is an attempt to make up what people would have said and how they would have talked, but it's not at all realistic.
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
It does tell a bit of the story that people might not otherwise know.

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?
Someone who enjoys poor radio performances.
Would you recommend The Adventures of Old Ironsides to your friends? Why or why not?
Nope. It is a good review of the story of the constitution but this is an example of poor radio performances gone worse.
How could the performance have been better?
Well, you would think an audio medium would use...oh, I don't know SOUND to tell a story.
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Adventures of Old Ironsides?
The early stages with the ambassador and the new captain on board. BORING!
Any additional comments?
Avoid at all costs.
