In November 1964, Cuban revolutionary Che Guevara went to the Congo with two hundred men, intent on making it his first step in taking over Africa and South America. He failed, thanks in large part to the efforts of an intrepid band of Green Berets. Licking his wounds, he retreated to Cuba to recruit more men and try the same thing in Bolivia. He failed there, too. In fact, he died there, and thus, despite his incompetence, became a glorious martyr to the cause. But who was trying to kill him, really—and who was trying to keep him alive? There, Griffin has some surprises up his sleeve, and as he takes us through the twists and turns of Special Ops, he spins a story of devilish cunning and thrilling adventure.

The brotherhood is back, and their mission has never been more dramatic—or deadly.

    " I've read all of this Griffin series, The Brotherhood of War. It follows a group of young lieutenants as they move up in the army ranks from just after WW II into the 60s. Someitmes there's a bit too much technical information for me, but the characters more than make up for it. "
