June, 1941. Determined that the United States will be prepared for war, Franklin D.

I've listened to 1ks of audible hours and complete series of Clancy, the Corps, and Brotherhood of War. This narrator is completely un listenable. For Gods sake don't do it. I've powered through bad narration that eventually came around, you can't do it here. I will miss out on the audible version of this series here and have to paperback it untill another narrator picks it up on book 3. Avoid this narrator at all costs!

World War II. On the island of Mindanao, the Philippines, a man calling himself "General" Fertig has set himself up as a guerrilla leader to harass the Japanese. Army records show that the only officer named Fertig in the Philippines is a reserve lieutenant colonel of the Corps of Engineers, reported MIA on Luzon.

Love the series but accustomed to the narrator's previous vocal expression of the characters dialect.
