I am reading all the W.E.B Griffin series and I find them very entertaining. He has some great characters that appear in different series. I would recommend to anyone who enjoys military fiction.

Sophia and her friend, Mia crept carefully through the trees. "Shhh!" Mia said suddenly. Her hand yanked Sophia down into a bush. "What?" Sophia peeked out of the bushes and saw a man dressed in black with a blood-stained knife. Sophia felt her blood turn to cold stone and she couldn't move. Mia smiled. "It's okay-" the man's black-gloved hand roughly jerked Mia out of the bushes. Sophia almost jumped up and knocked the stranger out, but she realized that the man hadn't seen her yet. She could still find a way to save her friend! Everything was silent. Even the birds weren't twittering. Something was utterly wrong. Of course! She slapped herself across thr face. Mia! Duh! She suddenly felt afraid. She wildly looked around. What if they were watching her? "Go on!" She whispered to herself. "Be brave! This is what friendship is!" She raced on, past dry leaves, past maple trees, past brambles and past bushes. She paused to catch her breath as she neared a train track. "Follow it!" She ordered. "No time to waste!" She walked along and skipped over a stone bridge. She neared a small house. Hmmm......maybe....? She ran to the door and knocked. A man's face peeked out. "Yes?" His eyes fell on her and he slammed the door. Yes! The right house! If she wanted to rescue her friend, she would have to climb through that open window on the side. She ducked and ran. When she was right next to it, she flung her arm up, clasping her fingers around the sill. She threw her other arm up, then pulled herself inside. Oops. Wrong decision. It was a house. Not a hideout. She turned to climb back out. "Hey! You!" Sophie whirled around.......... <p> <p>Please review! Thanks!

This book is for anyone who wants to understand how Military Intellingenc actually worked during World War II. Magic wad known to a handful of people. W.E.B. Griffin has a special knowledge of both the "brass hats" and the people in the trenches. He knew many of the players at both levels and the specific individuals have told him specifics about events that have NOT been reported or released to other individuals. I would reccomed reading other books in this or other series by this author. It would be better to read any of his series by starting with the first book in that series, then the second, etc. This book is perfect for a military book club discussion
