Victory and Honor | [W. E. B. Griffin, William E. Butterworth IV]

Victory and Honor

Wars come to an end. But then new ones begin. Just weeks after Hitler's suicide, Cletus Frade and his colleagues in the OSS find themselves up to their necks in battles every bit as fierce as the ones just ended. The first is political-the very survival of the OSS, with every department from Treasury to War to the FBI grabbing for its covert agents and assets. The second is on a much grander scale-the possible next world war, against Joe Stalin and his voracious ambitions.

Publisher's Summary

The spectacular new book in New York Times best-selling author W.E.B. Griffin's Honor Bound saga of World War II espionage.

Wars come to an end. But then new ones begin. Just weeks after Hitler's suicide, Cletus Frade and his colleagues in the OSS find themselves up to their necks in battles every bit as fierce as the ones just ended. The first is political - the very survival of the OSS, with every department from Treasury to War to the FBI grabbing for its covert agents and assets. The second is on a much grander scale: the possible next world war, against Joe Stalin and his voracious ambitions.

To get a jump on the latter, Frade has been conducting a secret operation, one of great daring - and great danger - but to conduct it and not be discovered, he and his men must walk a perilously dark line. One slip, and everyone becomes a casualty of war.

    Story
    "Classic W.E.B. and Brick's narration wins big."

    This is a wonderfully entertaining addition to the extremely enjoyable OSS series. The author(s) rank at the top of the military-historical fiction genre and this story continues the well-deserved legacy. Scott Brick is one of my favorite narrators possessing a polished ease of delivery that makes any story he reads come to life. This is, as I had hoped for and expected, another carefully researched and detailed narrative. The characters are tightly and skillfully interlaced with the actual historical timeline. I was extremely pleased with the story, the excellent quality of the audio production and Mr. Brick's exceptional skills as a narrator. Highly recommended and a must-read for W.E.B. fans.

    "Victory and Honor"

    Scott Brick does a great job narrating this series. This was a good book, the pace moved right along and their was some action but much less than other books in the series. This book had much more suspense involved in the storyline. This is one of the few Griffin books that brought a tear to my eye toward the end of the book. I had just read a book about Harry Truman creating the CIA so when it showed up in the story line I felt very knowledgeable. Can not wait for the next book in the series. You will not waste a book credit if you choose this book.

    First book I have listened to of the honor bound series. Will not be the last. Well performed, well written and exciting historical fiction. Enjoyed the characters, the plot and writing. Did not want it to end.

    I've been an audio book fan for years and years, since borrowing Books-on-Tape from my local library, buying cassettes from BOT, then migrating to Audible eight years ago. My audio library has become extensive. But still waiting for James Michener's work to get over here.....

    Story
    "No mas Argentina!"

    While I like the author’s Argentina “Honor” series very much overall, the story lines have gotten pretty thin and it’s probably time to put the old girl to rest. Victory and Honor is #6 in the series about O.S.S. operations in WWII South America. While the war ended sometime in #5, for some reason, the story continues into this volume….. and the next – I see #7, Empire and Honor just got published. This all seems to be about the author providing a writing career for his son, listed as a co-author on all Griffin series for the last few years. Even the WWII USMC series continues on into the Korean War. When will it all end? Who knows? Who cares? Suffice it to say, I’m already pot-committed, I.e. I’m all in, as are thousands of other Griffin fans. We keep buying the books because it’s very much like reading letters about family and old friends – you want to know what happens to them, however mundane and trivial. He brilliantly tosses in a few morsels of new info amid the pages and pages of chronicling daily life. For example, I became very happy when Griffin finally had the Navy dock Cletus Frade’s pay for the chronograph watch he never turned in after returning from Guadalcanal three years earlier in the story. And an even bigger nugget, he referenced the only crossover character in all of Griffin’s books, I.e. Lt. Colonel Clyde W. Dawkins – WOW! That’ll make the Griffin geeks keep coming back for more. I would never suggest anyone read a Griffin book as a stand-alone – it’s really about the journey and understanding the Griffin formula. On to Empire and Honor to find out what Cletus Frade is having for breakfast…..

    If you could sum up Victory and Honor in three words, what would they be?

    Captivating, intriguing, excellent.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The twists of the plot and the blending of the two cultures, North and South American, was clever and the family history interesting.


    Have you listened to any of Scott Brick’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Brick is a natural for Griffin's work, and he was excellent as always.


    If you could rename Victory and Honor, what would you call it?

    The Exhibition of Character


    Any additional comments?

    Just one of my favorite all time books.

    "Good but a little short"
    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Scott Brick does not do well with non English books, he strugles with foreign words and accents.

    I am so disappointed. I expected more of the wonderful saga, but Victory and Honor fell short.

    "not much of a story"

    I was really surprised how much I did NOT like this Novel. Lots of characters- lots of talking- lots of tie-ins with historical facts... very few of which led to anything. After about 4 hours you are really wondering if there is any plot to this at all. When it finally looks like you figured out what the plot is... that plot line is ruled out and are again left to wonder why am I listening to this. I finished it just to see why the book was written.In the last hour or so it somewhat comes together but not worth the time or a credit. In fact, I wouldn't recommend listening to it even if it were free. Blah Blah Blah... oh, I zoned out. Let me rewind to see what I missed. No, didn't miss anything.
