They were the leaders, the men who made the decisions that change the outcome of battles... and the fate of continents. From the awesome landing at Normandy to the torturous campaigns of the South Pacific, from the frozen hills of Korea to the devastated wastes of Dien Bien Phu, they had earned their stars. Now they led America’s finest against her most relentless enemy deep in the jungles of Southeast Asia. It was a new kind of war, but the Generals led a new kind of army, ready for battle - and glory....

“A major work... magnificent... powerful. If books about warriors and the women who love them were given medals for authenticity, insight and honesty, The Brotherhood of War would be covered with them.” (William Bradford Hule)
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.
Book 6 of the Brotherhood series finds our heroes conducting operations during the Vietnam Conflict. Their characters are further developed and they continue to act in the same way that they always have, except they're older and "wiser."? It isn't much, really, about the generals...rather, continues to develop all the characters. I enjoyed the book and am already on to number 7, "The Aviators;" which seems to write over some of the epilogue from "The Generals".
Some of the series are not as good as others, but I love them all. I especially like the books about WWII & the series about Argentina. A bit before my time, but right in line, generally, with history.
Ken McCoy was the most adventurous to me.
This one is excellent. I was very surprised at the number of voices he can use.
Yes, WEB Griffin Brotherhood of War series is a great read and listen.
Characters are people you want to read about.
WEB Griffin writes a great warrior story. I read the series years ago and more than enjoyed listening to the audio version. I recommend WEB Griffin often.
