Book Description

It was more than an incident. It was a deadly assault across the 38th parallel. It was the Korean War. In the fear and frenzy of battle, those who had served with heroism before were called again by America to man the trenches and sandbag bunkers. From Pusan to the Yalu, they drove forward with commands too new and tanks too old: brothers in war, bonded together in battle as they had never been in peace...

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great book! 4 Nov. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This was another excellent book! I highly recommend this series to anyone who is interested in or enjoys reading about the military. You should definitely read The Lieutenants first though, because the story is progressive. Can't wait to read the next in the series!

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Winner! 4 Dec. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
W.E.B. comes through again with a hard hitting fast paced novel. While the entire Brotherhood of war series is a spectecular blend of military action, espionage, and drama The Captians is the pinnacle of the series. The life of Lowell sees so many ups and downs in this book it would make most men fall apart but Griffin portrays these situations so realistically that I couldn't help but feel I was right there and feeling the emotions running through me. The key here is believability and W.E.B. comes through with flying colors. Well Done. Do yourself a favor and read this series, and make sure you take your heart medication before reading this particular book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Series 12 Oct. 2010
By Michael Gallagher - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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.

I always liked rooting for Lowell, and each of us has a very tight stickler to the rules Bellmon in our lives - Griffin portrays his characters similar to people ni each of our lives.

Reading each book in this series is well worth it - wish I could say the same about his latest books with Butterworth the IV!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good stuff. 14 July 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The Captains is another great one from the master, W.E.B. Griffin. I'm one of those guys who prefers the broader range of great war novels like "The Triumph and the Glory" or "The Naked and the Dead", or the Cornwell Sharpe or Aubrey/Maturin books, but The Brotherhood of War books are terrific in their own right and well worth reading, every one of them.
