Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
Second volume in the Men at War saga, begun with The Last Heroes (1997), a paperback originally published (in 1985) under the pseudonym Alex Baldwin. Griffin has written several popular WWII series, featuring the Marine Corps, the Navy, and now the shadow warriors of the OSS, led by "Wild Bill" Donovan. The first in this new saga turned on a cache of uranium ore in the Belgian Congo. This time, along with other jobs, the OSS must drop agents into the Belgian Congo and smuggle out ore to use in making atomic bombs. Secrecy is all, since the Germans also may well be devising their own atomic weapons. Shrewd, sharp, rousing entertainment.
