It was more than an incident: It was a deadly assault across the 38th parallel. It was the Korean War. In the fear and the frenzy of battle, those who had served with heroism before were called again by America to man the trenches and sandbag bunkers. From Pusan to the Yalu, they drove forward with commands too new and tanks too old, brothers in war, bonded together in battle as they had never been in peace....

I don't know since I haven't read the print version - but I expect the audio would be better since the narration is so terrific.
What? You want me to give a spoiler like this? I will try to be vague and say "The Formal Disciplinary Proceeding Near The End." Lowell proves himself again to be, despite his background, an incredible and loyal friend.
His cadence is brilliant - especially in this book, which is less about battle and more about people. He is lousy at female voices though!
Lowell, of course. The book is almost entirely about him. We learn much more about the character than in The Lieutenants - he is a good and thoughtful man, outward appearances to the contrary.
I don't know why I love these books so much, but I do. They're not especially well-written, they are hardly intellectual, and they use - probably appropriately for the times - the Words You Cannot Speak. (The very frequent use of the n-word, including in places where it wasn't necessary, and the completely unnecessary use of the c-word, are the only reasons I gave this book 4 instead of 5 stars).
What these books are is exciting and a little bit touching. I can't wait to listen to the next one in the series!
The writing is enjoyable, and I really have enjoyed the progress of the story. Eric Dove has been excellent in his performance.
Good historical fiction. Facts and fiction mixed.
Lowell. Always a pain in the butt to superiors.
I like most of Griffin's work.
this is a great series for the new listeners to web griffin books im workin on getting all of them
the realistic action
I have really enjoyed this series by W. E. B. Griffin. The character development is great and the narrator, Eric G Dove is very good. This entire series has been like a soap opera for men. I find myself getting attached to some characters and not liking others. There is plenty of military action but there is also some of the day to day stuff that happens in life. The descriptions of the day to day life in the military is very accurate and the details are spot on. The narrator gets most of his terminology right and keeps his characters in their unique style of voice throughout the series. If you're a military history buff or just looking for a good series to start give this one a try.
American patriot, veteran, historical researcher and writer.
The second in the Brotherhood of War series that picks up on our favorite characters and moves them along in our hearts and mind. I am addicted to this W.E.B Griffin series, and I can only express satisfaction with this listening experience. The narration by Eric G. Dove continues to be superb in the delivery of character voices. If you like military stories, such as the Band of Brothers, etc, then you will enjoy these books.
Get these in order. Awesome story and action. What a series! This series will be a hit with all genres. I highly recomend this series to all. This is the first time I have downloaded an entire series after hearing the first two books. Worth twice the price.
The Pusan break out
Griffins early work and some of his best. Well worth the listen,
