Publisher's Summary

Dien Bien Phu. Saigon. Hanoi. In 1954, they were only exotic names from a French campaign halfway around the world. But now American fighting men - proven on the bloody beaches of Normandy and in the minefields of Korea - are summoned to help beat back the guerilla forces of Ho Chi Minh. To some, the “secret” war in Indochina was the depth of folly. To others, like the majors, it pointed to the heights of glory.

Absolutely excellent!

Just as before but maybe even more so, I cannot wait to listen to the next book in this wonderful series! I truly appreciate that the author brings in interesting female characters as well, but these stories have an overall depth of character that can be appreciated by anyone.

Get pronunciation and jargon accurate.

I read the entire brotherhood of war series in hardback. I really enjoy W.E.B. Griffin. One point; please have your narrator learn the intricacies of military jargon.
The M-1 Garand is pronounced Grrr-rand, as in grandstand, not soft G as in Germany.
Also; 8p.m. in military time is spoken as Twenty-hundred hours, not Two thousand.

Excellent book

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

He reads well, and with style; however, in the whole series he mispronounces things that show that he was never in the military. The most glaring of these is when he is giving the specific times of 1000 hours (he calls it 1 thousand hours - should be 10 hundred) and 2000 hours (he calls it 2 thousand hours - should be 20 hundred). The other is the way he pronounces Fayetteville. Other than that, it is a great performance.
