Publisher's Summary

They were the chosen ones - and the ones who chose to be the best. Never before had the United States given so select a group of fighting men such punishing preparation. Now they were heading for their ultimate test of skill and nerve and sacrifice, in a war unlike any they or their country had ever fought before, in a land that most of America still knew nothing about - Vietnam...

Critic Reviews

“Griffin has captured the rhythms of army life and speech, its rewards and deprivations... Captivating.” ( Publishers Weekly)

Griffin at his best

Brotherhood of War is the series that introduced me to WEB Griffin. All of these characters are like old friends. I was so excited when I saw that the series was being offered by Audible.

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.

Amazing Lowell

I just can't put these books down. They just keep coming up on my ipod. I like the Lowell character best: he's filthy rich but is engaged by work in the Army. Confined to staff puke work, he continues to amaze, then punches the pooch. On to book #6, The Generals.

Brotherhood Extraordinaire

It took me a little longer to be totally hooked on Griffin's Brotherhood of War series especially after reading his spectacular Corps & Presidential Agent series initially BUT that being said by Book 4 I was totally hooked. I read a few other types of books between book 3 & 4 and discovered within the first few minutes of Book 4 that there are very few authors like Griffin out there who grab your interest and write so elegantly about the victories and failures of events and people.

This is at least the third book of this series that left me with tears of gladness with a pinch of sadness at the end of the book.

I wholeheartedly recommend this series as well as any other writings of W.E.B Griffin. I am also a big fan of the fabulous narration by Eric G. Dove.

Enjoyable Series

I stumbled into this series and have not been able to stop listening. I actually started with Book 8 (The Aviators) and then went back and listened to Books 1 - 5 with 6 just purchased. Fantastic continuing series that has me picking up the next book immediately. Easy to connect with the characters in the story and follow them through each book.

As good as the rest of the series

One of the things I enjoy about the author’s series is how he changes the history of his characters from book to book. He doesn’t disappoint with this one either. That said, it is a really good ‘read’.

Reliably outstanding!

I continue to thoroughly enjoy each book in this series and I dread the day when I reach the end of the last one.
