They were the young ones, the bright ones, the ones with the dreams. From the Nazi-prowled wastes of North Africa to the bloody corridors of Europe, they honorably answered the call. War - it was their duty, their job, their life. They marched off as boys and they came back - those who made it - as soldiers and professionals forged in the heat of battle....

“An American epic.” (Tom Clancy)
This is a series that is about life in the military, but has super character development. I've read the entire series several times and still enjoy going back. Listening to the performance is a differenet experience.
The only other series of books following a set of characters that compares is Tom Clancy's
I use the recording of the book to escape during excercise, yard work, etc. so I don't do it all in one sitting.
Great series....hopefully the others in this series will be available soon!!!!!
I like Dick Hill more as narrator than Eric Dove, and I found the character development in this book much weaker than Griffin's Presidential Agent series or the Corps Series. It's OK, but no more. I MIGHT try the Captains just to see if the characters continue and grow in the telling. I remember I didn't find Book 1 of the Corps series anywhere near as good as the follow-ups so maybe the Brotherhood of War will follow the same pattern. I'll read the reviews.
American patriot, veteran, historical researcher and writer.
I do not know what took me so long to find the Brotherhood of War series, but now that I have, I cannot pull myself away from them. I read and listen to military history with an insatiable desire. I tend to stay away from fiction, but I must say that W.E.B. Griffin weaves a great story line through historical periods, with great characters that draw you in and make you care. He gets it right in both history and mindset. The narration by Eric G. Dove, is very good, however, his pronunciation of some of the German could use some help. In my opinion there is no way your coming away from the Lieutenants, without going on to the next book in the series. Listening entertainment at its best...
I have a habit of re-
I like his delivery. Got a couple of yuks at his pronunciation of foreign words, but I usually do from most narrators.
Imagine my dismay when, on finishing
Narrator should have had someone teach him how to pronouce the german words in the book. Made me angry everytime he pronouced even the small words incorrectly.
DO NOT LET THIS GUY NARRATE ANOTHER BOOK THAT HAS OTHER WORDS THAN ENGLISH!!!!!!!!!
I read this series years ago and enjoyed it a great deal. I am happy to see Griffin's earlier work finally available through audible.com. His earlier books seem to be better than his recent work.
Everything - especially the story
Nice job - fantastic character voices
Thanks! Please hurry with the remainder of this fantastic series. One of the best in our lifetime!
Best book series ever, completely ruined by the absolute worst German pronunciation. Where is the quality control on this one. My ears are bleeding from his mangling of the many German words and place names. Oh yes, a German accent should never sounds like a Russian accent. Not asking for a native German speaker, but holy cow... Just awful.
This booj haa been around aince the early 90s. I am not much of a history buff. So, in the beginning as the author sets up the scene , I admit boredom with lots of yawn. The setup was important to know who. these characters were and representation. I'm glad that I hung in and listened all the way through. There are parts that made me laugh, be frustrated, angry if prejudices implied...erc, etc. This book is worth the read. I will Co tune to read the next booka.
narrating monotonous orders
plot was ok i was repeatedly distracted by the female narrations by a male voice hard to not be distracted at that you must agree?
i liked some of the impersonations some were bad the impersonation of sandy felter was horrible
if your going to do something, do it right, think it thru a bit and don't be cheap. if it was me who wrote it id be disappointed in its audible form.....i was disappointed a listener at many points in the story
Insipid notion guy
Probably. I like W.E.B. Griffjn;s Story
THat perhaps he should have studied the enunciation of German words
No the narrator needs work.
