France, August 1944. In this alternate history WW2 adventure, American and British forces struggle to trap and destroy the still-potent German armies defending Normandy. But the Allies face another formidable obstacle of their own making: a seething rivalry between generals leads to a high-level disregard for orders that puts the campaign in the Falaise Pocket at risk of devastating failure - or spectacular success. That campaign unfolds through the eyes of two American brothers - one an idealistic pilot, the other a fatalistic tanker - as they plunge headlong into the confusion and indiscriminant slaughter of war.

Under Fire Brothers
Yes, the story was constantly moving with only brief pauses to get the story being told and how you picture in your mind to get caught up with a semingly flawless transition back into the action.
My favorite was the bombing of the building where a French Freedom Fighter was being interrogated.
There were parts that made me laugh that normally involved one of the brothers, Sean, and his quick sarcastic wit.

A good story if you like combat scenes and in depth military thinking. Also love how the author portrayed Monty as a sloth! Which in many respects is true but so many are afraid to speak this truth because of the positive image he left behind.
Worth a listen if you like WWII stories with a good amount of action

Action War Realistic. That's Amore!
The Moon brothers. Well developed, placed in realistic World War 2 fighting.
Bill Fike is great at distinguishing various characters with reasonable voices.
Half. We could crouch in the bottom of a foxhole eating C rations. Trading my Ham and Lima Beans for his Beans and Franks. We would wish we were back up above with dry feet!
Ham would have to throw in his carton of cigarettes to gain the coveted Lima Beans though. ROFLMAO!
I was impressed with the factual material that Mr. Grasso incorporated in the story. I read a lot about World War 2, these made the listen very interesting to me!
It seems there is discussion towards this being in the realm of Alternative History. It isn't Harry Turtledove or Man in the High Castle. There's a place for AH. But this to me, is excellent REALISTIC War action. Maybe "what if" would be accurate, but isn't that what any fiction is?
BE AWARE OF MANY "F" BOMBS AND OTHER BOUTS OF SWEARING. THESE ARE MEN IN BATTLEFIELD SITUATIONS OR "LOCKER ROOM" ONES, if you will... If language offends, you may want to steer clear.
