Product Description

Product Description

They 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 tortorous 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. It was a new kind of war, but the Generals led a new kind of army, ready for battle--and for glory...

2.0 out of 5 stars why this title? Feb. 3 2003
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The series got boring even before this book! It's always the same plots just in different times!
And if you care for details in a series, to follow the whole history of the caracters, don't buy any of Griffin's books, because he is mixing everything: names, ranks, places, dates,...! It can drive you crazy. Doesn't he ever control what he writes?
What made me really angry at this special book, is that there is no reference to the title, concerning the main caracters!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fine writing March 29 2002
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I love all of Griffin's books in his Brotherhood of War series. He has humor, and excitement. Men who know the Army will recognize a lot of the situations. I sit and laugh a lot while I read them. I have read most of them 3-4 times.

3.0 out of 5 stars Abrupt ending is a real let-down Aug. 12 2000
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book was a nice ride -- right up until the sudden ending. I enjoyed the book completely, but you get the impression at the end of the book that Mr. Griffin simply wanted to end the series.
The book ends with a multi-page epilogue that discusses what happens to the main players in later years (hint: the "New Breed" is a "prequel" to this book). I can't tell you how let down I was to see the series come to an abrupt end like this. I've really enjoyed the series and I'd looked forward to seeing players who'd become old friends move onto higher and higher levels of rank in the military.
Enjoy the book, but be prepared for the sudden end. It's like a cold splash in the face.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing Aug. 12 2000
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The book doesn't resolve anything -- and doesn't complete the story. Read the last few pages, put it back on the shelf and go home.
You'll be happy you did.
