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.
Would you try another book from W. E. B. Griffin and/or Eric G. Dove?
story good but lost ending no sound no voice
What was most disappointing about W. E. B. Griffin’s story?
not in the story in the voice it went blank
How could the performance have been better?
story was good
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Majors?
I would like to know how it ended
Any additional comments?
I wanr credit for the book
the whole series is outstanding very entertaining i highly recommend it well worth a listen
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.
Love the story but it's narrator can't pronounce the terms properly and it is an irritation.
favorite series of book, W. E. B. Griffin awesome account of military history , excellent story telling
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.
As always, the rich cast of characters and their heroic exploits is breathtaking! Masterfully done. Thoroughly enjoyable!
EGD is one of the best narrators I've heard...and quite the author now so I understand.
I would highly recommend this book to anyone who likes military stories! Kept my attention the entire way, can't wait to see what happens next!
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.
