Book 14 of the Rat Bastards series follows a rag-tag World War II platoon as they prepare for a major Japanese offensive that could turn the tide of the war in the South Pacific. More introspective than earlier books in the series, Suicide River places the drama of the war alongside the internal tensions among platoon members and others sharing their hard-scrabble life in New Guinea. Performer Ray Porter's deep voice brings drama to the tale, and he does an excellent job nailing the soldiers' regional accents. If you've ever wondered what it was really like to fight in the South Pacific during WWII, Suicide River is an excellent choice.
The Japs are staging a surprise attack.
But a bigger, bloodier surprise is waiting for them! Whoever controls New Guinea can turn the tide of the war. That’s why the Japs are mounting a bold sneak attack designed to wipe out the Americans. But the Rat Bastards know when and where the enemy plans to strike. Can they quit thrill-hunting and fighting each other long enough to become the killer combat until the Yanks need to survive?
