Publisher's Summary

They were the professionals, the men who had been toughened by combat in the mine-laden fields of Europe, in Korea, in Greece, in Indochina. Now, in the twilight of a dying decade, they must return to the United States to forge a new type of American soldier - one to be tested on the beaches of Cuba and in a new war yet to come....

    "Soap opera for men"

    I have really enjoyed this series by W. E. B. Griffin. The character development is great and the narrator, Eric G Dove is very good. This entire series has been like a soap opera for men. I find myself getting attached to some characters and not liking others. There is plenty of military action but there is also some of the day to day stuff that happens in life. The descriptions of the day to day life in the military is very accurate and the details are spot on. The narrator gets most of his terminology right and keeps his characters in their unique style of voice throughout the series. If you're a military history buff or just looking for a good series to start give this one a try.

    "Pleasant experience"
    What did you love best about The Colonels?

    Glad that they are finally producing the BoW series and hopefully the publishers will finish out the series and TC also.


    What about Eric G. Dove’s performance did you like?

    While his voice is pleasant and much less aggravating than Dick Hill, Dove has no idea (and obviously neither does the editor) about the military or the language. It is the simple things like misstating military time (one=thousand hours, not ten=hundred hours on a 24 hour military clock). But Dove does know it is a [M Nineteen-eleven A one] pistol not a [M one nine one one A one] pistol. Significant improvement over listening to Dick Hill in the other books. Enjoyable listen and recommend it to other W E B G fans.


    Any additional comments?

    Pick it up, its a worthy listen but you need to start with the Lieutenants.

    "Absolutely wonderful again!"

    My only possible dislike of this book or series is that I am getting close to the end of it, and I hate to think of coming to the end because it is so genuinely enjoyable.

    "Great series"

    All the books from the lieutenants through the generals are really excellent. I've read them and I've listen to them all several times over a 20 year period.

    "Great Stories!!!!"

    I just wanted to comment on the narrator should have been told how to read military time for example it's not 2 thousand it 20 hundred and it's not O 800 it's zero 800 I know it's little things but bothered me a little. Over all a great story told very well.

    "Not much of a story"

    Too much rehash of previous books. Reader confused ranks many times. Lowell's story is redundant.
