They were the young ones, the bright ones, the ones with the dreams. From the Nazi-prowled wastes of North Africa to the bloody corridors of Europe, they answered the call gladly. It was their duty, their job, their life. They marched off as boys, and they came back—those who made it—as soldiers and professionals forged in the heat of battle...

I f you read this book and enjoy it half as much as I did, you will buy the whole series immediately. The characters are well crafted, and bring you into the story that they are living. They are patriotic men and women that live up to our ideals of what it is to be an American. The research that the author uses is accurate and you might learn some things that you weren't aware of before sitting down. I heartily recommend this book for a fun, and exciting time.

The Brotherhood of War Series is an excellent epic of Army life from World War II to Vietnam. not only is there interesting characters with different backgrounds and ambitions, there is a very informative storyline that shows the development of the Green Berets and the helicopter. Book 6 in the series, The Generals, is chronologically the last book in the series and reveals the fates of Lowell, Felter, MacMillan, Parker, and the other soldiers. Books 7, 8, and 9 are stories involving previous incidents in the 60s.

Reading this book took me into the lives of the characters W.E.B. Griffin created. I could not stop reading this book a long with all of it's sequels. The character development from young men into experienced soldiers takes you on a journey you will not soon forget.

I started buying Griffin's book back in 1989 and have been reading them ever since. This one definitely got me hooked.

I don't know how I missed these when they first came out, but I missed out. This first book of the series got me locked in and now at the time of this review I am up to the Generals. Not so much on the battles in these books, but more into the men and women in the series. They read fast, but are very memorable. I highly recommend long as you don't mind starting another series.

w.e.b. griffin is undoubtedly one of the best writers out there. his combination of history and fiction are masterful. his characters are colorful (especially lt. craig lowell). griffin knows what the army and its men are all about.

If you start this, plan to read the complete series. The people in the book become like family.

Griffin has a way of telling war stories by interweaving lives. It makes you wonder if he is bringing to light facts not dis closed in history books. His characters come to life in a way you can relate to them. I enjoyeday the book Lieutenants and am now reading Captains. It is proving to be a good series.
