They were the professionals, the men who had been toughened by combat in the mine-laden fields of Europe, in Korea, in Greece, in Indochina. Now, in the twilight of a dying decade, they must return to the United States to forge a new type of American soldier - one to be tested on the beaches of Cuba and in a new war yet to come....

Can't wait for the other books in this series is put out by Audible, please hurry up :)
Glad that they are finally producing the BoW series and hopefully the publishers will finish out the series and TC also.
While his voice is pleasant and much less aggravating than Dick Hill, Dove has no idea (and obviously neither does the editor) about the military or the language. It is the simple things like misstating military time (one=thousand hours, not ten=hundred hours on a 24 hour military clock). But Dove does know it is a [M Nineteen-eleven A one] pistol not a [M one nine one one A one] pistol. Significant improvement over listening to Dick Hill in the other books. Enjoyable listen and recommend it to other W E B G fans.
Pick it up, its a worthy listen but you need to start with the Lieutenants.
I spend about 55 hours a week driving and really enjoy having a good book to pass the miles.
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.
Fourth in the series, just as exciting as the previous three. Our heroes proceed along their careers, meshed in the history of the USA during the late 50s to early 60s. Is the Army that root bound? On to number five!
I enjoy hearing the progression of the characters. I felt like this book was mostly just filler to segue from one story to another. I am hoping the next has more action and character development than this one, or I will be done with the series.
This one is the worst of the series so far. The first ones were great, but this one was pretty boring.
I hope so. This one didn't develop anything earth-shattering.
