Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Praise for W.E.B. Griffin and the Brotherhood of War novels

“W.E.B. Griffin is a storyteller in the grand tradition, probably the best man around for describing the military community…An American epic.”—Tom Clancy

“W.E.B. Griffin is the best chronicler of the U.S. military ever to put pen to paper—and rates among the best storytellers in any genre.”—The Phoenix Gazette

“Absorbing, salted-peanuts reading, filled with detailed and fascinating descriptions of weapons, tactics, training, army life, and battle. The Brotherhood members themselves are interesting characters, possessed of intelligence and humor.”—The New York Times

“First rate. Griffin, a former soldier, skillfully sets the stage, melding credible characters, a good eye for detail, and colorful gritty dialogue into a readable and entertaining story.”—The Washington Post Book World

“W.E.B. Griffin has been called the poet laureate of the American military, and it is certain that his books convey a sure portrait of that culture. His grasp of history and his ability to personalize that big picture through the actions of an ever-changing cast of characters not only informs—it is highly entertaining as well.”—Los Angeles Daily News
