Griffin is a storyteller in the grand tradition, probably the best man around for describing the military community. Brotherhood of War...is an American epic.”—Tom ClancyThey were the leaders, the men who made the decisions that changed the outcome of battles...and the fate of continents. From the awesome landing at Normandy to the torturous campaigns of the South Pacific, from the frozen hills of Korea to the devastated wastes of Dien Bien Phu, they had earned their stars. Now they led America's finest against her most relentless enemy deep in the jungles of Southeast Asia.

Disappointing finale to an incredibly entertaining series.
I own this series both in paper, and on Kindle. I've re-read it numerous times, each time dreading reaching the Generals. I love most of the characters, and almost feel like I know them. Sandy, Mac, the Bellmons, the Parkers, Hanrahan, Jiggs...all awesome characters. But the series is Craig Lowell. Without him, it's just another war series.
What WEB Griffin did to Lowell in this book is unexplainable. Lowell wouldn't have thrown away his career for this women. Why have the woman in the story at all. The concept of a rescue in Nam was exciting, and a way to tie up the series with all the stars together. Bringing this idiotic woman into the story was nothing but moronic. And then, on top of this idiocy, Lowell's son shows up in another lame and totally unnecessary twist.
Who wrote the middle of this book, WEB? You ruined a great series, and destroyed a wonderful character.
Sucks.

This one is one of the very best-written novels of this superb series excepting the ending, which is completely and utterly unsatisfactory. Oddly, it seems to skip over key parts of the chronology (perhaps to be handled later in the series?) whereby Col. Lowell makes Colonel and serves in Vietnam. We are introduced to Col. Lowell's cousin as he goes through basic training and more, and the series continues to chronicle the rise of Special Forces. This particular novel features some of the author's best writing and storytelling. ***Very Minor Spoiler*** -- Col. Lowell, who is a talented and brilliant officer, acts stupidly and I saw where this was headed early on, as will most readers. I would have preferred a different ending with respect to Col. Lowell, who is my favorite character in the series. Oh well ...

This is a deeply insightful novel about the Army. Oddly, it mainly focuses on rather unconventional members of the Officer Corps but is just fine for all that. Col. Lowell received his commission in the most unconventional manner imaginable. Col. Felter dropped out of West Point and re-enlisted. Numerous other characters receive direct commissions. In my 5 years in the Army I never met an officer who received a direct commission or a battlefield commission -- that's how rare that is. Enjoy. RJB.

Got the entire Brotherhood of War series, won't get into detail by book, because I don't want to ruin it for readers. Really liked Griffin's character development and ability to tell a story. Best part is after having lived in some of these locations myself, though much later than when the books are set, I love the accuracy and ability to see some of the things even today that are referenced in the books. A very well told story that I will read again, and I don't normally read books twice.

A very disappointing cap for a fine - an outstanding series. I read each of these books as they came out. My service covered much of the same time period from Korea to Nam and I lived a number of the adventures he wrote about. It was clear he knew the army and solders. I found him generally accurate in mood and tone except for the Generals. That was simply silly! I recently reread the series in their chronological order, saving the Generals for last. wish now I had left it off altogether.

I've read this series several times over the last 20 years or so, and just started it again after a 5+ year layoff. Reading it again I've forgotten how good of a storyteller Griffin was before writing with his son in his last few books. While this one sets the stage for each of his other series (i.e., Corps, Vigilantes, Philadelphia police series) with a rich guy who always bucks the system to beat up the bad guy, with this one you have good character developmet and dialogue, and get a history of the Army from WWII through Vietnam - Korea, tank development, army aviation, Green Berets, you name it.

This one continues the Lowell saga with a very quick and abrupt ending - it's as if he got tired of writing and said "I'm done." You would think a little bit of closure wouldn't be out of order for as much as we've come to know / love / hate some of the characters vs. a few pages at the end.

I used this product for my reading pleasure and to re in forced my belief that WEB Griffin is the very best war time author that ever lived, I have read all of his "Brotherhood of war book writings" multiple times just enjoyable authentic historical situational reading ....

WEB Griffin is one of my longtime favorite authors. I've read practically everything he was written. This series, Brotherhood of War, is the story of the US Army Aviation and Special Forces. the New Breed picks up at Vietnam and moves them forward. A great read.

Caution: Soldiers talk rough and do a lot of other things that are attributed to their behavior. Griffin doesn't shy away from this.
All of W.E.B. Griffin's war stories are excellent. I've read the "Presidential Agent Novels," "The Corps Series (US Marine Corps)," and "The Brotherhood of War" novels. To discover how easily the Generals, Admirals, and the US Government send our young men into war is appalling, and to think a ship or an airplane is more important than a human being, is a real eye-opener.

Tradition gets in the way of allowing brilliant young men (often without college educations) was moving up the military ladder.
