Brotherhood of War: The Colonels

by W. E. B. Griffin

For readers who want to steep themselves in fiction surrounding events before, during and after the last "good war", World War II, W. E. B. Griffin offers two thrilling series: The BROTHERHOOD OF WAR and THE CORPS.

In the BROTHERHOOD OF WAR, the careers and personal lives of a band of U.S. Army enlisted men and officers are followed in 7 volumes from the late 1930's through four decades, including Viet Nam. THE CORPS begins with the adventures of a group of China Marines prior to the breakout of war in the Pacific in another multi-volume set that climaxes with a band of renegade Marines holed up on Mindinao at the end of World War II. Griffin's ear for dialogue, comprehensive research and personal knowledge of career military men and women lends these wartime sagas an aura of authenticity, adventure, romance and exciting reading.
