Publisher's Summary

The time is early 1943: In the Philippines, a ragtag American guerrilla army battles the Japanese, under a most unusual commander. In Budapest, an agent must keep two key prisoners from being interrogated by the Gestapo, his only choices being to rescue them - or kill them. In Washington, an Army Air Corps captain suddenly finds himself assigned deep under the sea, his mission an improbable one of submarines, supplies, arms, and gold. And in Cairo, an undistinguished pilot named Darmstadter wonders why in the world the OSS is interested in his services, only to find out in the most dramatic way possible -and become a hero in the process.

Everywhere adventure crackles, fueled by the narrative realism, rich characters, and special flair for the military heart and mind that have always made Griffin's novels unique. The Fighting Agents is further proof that "Griffin rates among the best storytellers in any genre." (Phoenix Gazette)

    "Spies"

    Over the years I have read most of W.E.B. Griffin’s books. Now they are coming out in audio form I have gone back and checked my records for the ones I had missed reading. This book is one of them. Unlike some of the other series this one is about spies primarily the OSS. It is best to read the series in order; this is the fourth in the series. This book has two main plots going on, one with James Whittaker who is being sent to the Philippines to meet with General Wendell Fertig. He is a Lt Colonel that promoted himself to General to unite all the wandering U.S. and Philippino Army members that had fled into the jungle from the Japanese. He managed to gather 30,000 + men to fight as a guerrilla army against the Japanese. General MacArthur refused to recognize him so Donovan’s OSS went in to help supply him.
    The other plot was with Canidy and his group bringing nuclear scientist out of Germany. In this particular case they were coming out via Hungry but Eric Fulmar and his scientist were caught for being Black marketers and sentenced to 90 days hard work in a coal mine. Canidy set up a rescue before the SS discovered who they were. The book has lots of action, suspense, some humor. Scott Brick was great narrating the book. If you are into military historical fiction you will enjoy this book. I was particularly interested in the author’s comments at the end of the book. Will not tell you, you must read the book to find out.

    "Good book, terrible performance!"
    If you could sum up The Fighting Agents in three words, what would they be?

    great book, fun series


    Would you be willing to try another one of Scott Brick’s performances?

    NO!!!!!! He is the worst narrator on Audible! Restrict Scott to American stories only, he does not handle non-english words, makes for a very tough listen!

    "Such a Diaspointment!"
    Would you try another book from W. E. B. Griffin and/or Scott Brick?

    I've read and listened to all of W.E.B. Griffin's other series several times each. This must have been his first attempt to write with his son. It was an awful book. I couldn't finish it. Random characters, pointless dialogue, wandering storyline. Admirable idea; terrible outcome.


    Would you ever listen to anything by W. E. B. Griffin again?

    Preferably a book written by him alone.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Scott Brick’s performances?

    Yes, Scott Brick is great - I've listened to him many times.


    What character would you cut from The Fighting Agents?

    The first 5 at least!


    Any additional comments?

    Read Griffin's early series. They are amazing.
