From Shanghai to Wake Island, the Corps was America’s first line of defense as the winds of war exploded into the devastating surprise attack on Pearl Harbor. This is the story of the men of the Marine Corps, their loves and loyalties, an elite fraternity united by courage and honor, as they steel themselves for battle, prepared to make the ultimate sacrifice....

Enjoy listening to books while working it makes the day fly by.
This give a great history of the Marine Corps before and during World War II
It seamed like things that happened in the 1930's and 1940's in the Corps still happen today.

It is a pretty good start, but do not the story to resolve in any way.
Excellent book. Love the series. Would prefer another Narrator whose voice would more accurately reflect the main character, Kenneth McCoy. Mr. Hill's voice seems a bit to old to accurately portray McCoy.
One of the better I have heard, and made me want to continue the story with follow-on books in the series
Great combination of character development and history
Ken McCoy is probably everyone's favorite, but there are many good characters.
I read to escape. Classic sci-fi/military sci-fi/fantasy. It is all about the story. No deep thought, no dream sequences... Entertainment
Strong characters. Just enough action and sex to make it enjoyable. Although that much rampant sexuality and love at first sight becomes a bit unbelievable after time. At times feels a little like a romance novel. I enjoyed the first 3 books in the series and then found I couldn't continue.
I listen to a variety of audio books constantly in car and gym. My reviews remind me what I’ve read & are hopefully helpful to you as well.
I bought three and read two in the series before I realized it's just a war-themed soap opera. It was interesting enough to have me buy up through the third in the series, but I'm done. I liked the narration/voices except when he tried to do women. Speaking of which, the 'hero' is always trying to do women. That got a bit old. Overall, I only recommend this series if you like soap operas.
I read the first few books as they came out, and gave them to someone to read. Then a few years later bought them again, and re-read them. And bought the others as they were released.
I love this time in US History, and the stories are great, if maybe a bit repetitive in the re-telling of the prior books.
Eric G Dove does The Brotherhood of War series, and does a great job. Dick Hill is pretty bad. I am not sure if he has a speech impediment, ESL, or if it is something else. He sounds like a drunken version of Yogi Bear impersonating Colonel Klink from Hogan's Heroes. Every statement is emotional and passionate! He describes a bathroom with unbelievable passion. The description of a hat is an incredible experience. No one in these books has any control of their emotions. That does not seem like the military I know. I love these books and am very disappointed with the narration. I will not buy any more of them.
