    They were the young ones, the bright ones, the ones with the dreams. From the Nazi-prowled wastes of North Africa to the bloody corridors of Europe, they honorably answered the call. War - it was their duty, their job, their life. They marched off as boys and they came back - those who made it - as soldiers and professionals forged in the heat of battle....

    What did you love best about The Lieutenants?

    This is a series that is about life in the military, but has super character development. I've read the entire series several times and still enjoy going back. Listening to the performance is a differenet experience.


    What other book might you compare The Lieutenants to and why?

    The only other series of books following a set of characters that compares is Tom Clancy's


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I use the recording of the book to escape during excercise, yard work, etc. so I don't do it all in one sitting.


    Any additional comments?

    Great series....hopefully the others in this series will be available soon!!!!!

    Four famed '60s radicals are gunned down at long range by a sniper. Under enormous media scrutiny, the FBI quickly concludes that Marine war hero Carl Hitchcock, whose 93 kills were considered the leading body count tally among American marksman in Vietnam, was the shooter. But as the Bureau, led by Special Agent Nick Memphis, bears down, Hitchcock commits suicide. But Nick is suspicious and asks his friend, the retired Marine sniper Bob Lee Swagger, to examine the data.

    Steven says: "from a former MOS8541 and Hunter reader"
    "RIP Bob Lee"
    Overall

    I've read all of the Swagger novels at least once each. This is a great swan song for the character, and in addition Mr. Hunter takes a swipe at some of the folks that really deserve it. There was a lot of subtle humor in it for old farts like me.
