I just finished "The Brotherhood of War" series on Audible by W.E.B. Griffin. I can't even tell you how much fun I've had with Craig Lowell, Sandy Felter and the gang. "The Lieutenants" is the first novel, and for a WEB Griffin book, it actually starts pretty slow. The guy might be my favorite author of all time. When you combine that with the narrator (Eric Dove) and you have tens of hours of expert story telling. Compelling characters, easily the best dialogue written that I have ever read (frankly, it makes listening to or reading a Baldacci novel just painful...)and wonderful stories of our men in service. It takes the characters from the end of WWII up through Vietnam. What a wonderful series. When I'm asked what my favorite series of his is, it is usually the one I just finished. You can't go wrong with "The Corps" series either. So good. Here's the disclaimer... if you just want the facts, they might not work for you. He will talk about cultural aspects of military life (I have no military experience, but from reviews I have read, he seems to capture it very well) that might seem like minutia to some. If you spend a fair amount of time in the car, check out Audible. Great company, great support, great product. Then, give WEB Griffin a shot.
