They were the young ones, the bright ones, the ones with the dreams. From the Nazi-prowled wastes of North Africa to the bloody corridors of Europe, they honorably answered the call. War—it was their duty, their job, their life. They marched off as boys and they came back—those who made it—as soldiers and professionals forged in the heat of battle…

    " I have read this book many times but do to recent medical diagnoses, I had to switch to audio books. From the first page to the last page there was great entertainment to be had. The book is the bases for the whole series. It introduced the majority of the characters and gave an in-depth background of each character. I have learned to become engrossed in each character and it makes me feel bad when you know that what they are doing is going to get them into trouble but somehow there is always a friend standing by to help them through the situation. I would recommend this whole series to anyone who enjoy's reading fiction about WWII but can understand it's fiction and not some historical writing. "

    " Good book for the road. Enjoyed the readers cadence and character play with in the story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mark Doty | 2/9/2014

    " Read the entire series a couple of times. Interesting and exciting. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kathy | 2/7/2014

    " This is a below average soap opera. The author has written oodles of books in at least two series, and they have high ratings so i thought I would try it. Felt strung along because the book ends as a chapter would, not a novel. Equivalent to an average romance novel, but for boys. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bryan | 2/6/2014

    " I read this series as a Cadet at the USAFA and loved it. Fifteen years later, I still love it. The characters are wonderfully developed and the story line is so intriging. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Isaac | 2/6/2014

    " I did not really like this book because there wasn't really that good of a plot. I probably would not of finished if it was the rioty part that happened in it. I do not recommend this book to anyone "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 CJ | 2/3/2014

    " Harlequin romances for those who thought harlequin romances were just a little too....fluffy....frilly....and had too many women in them and way too much of that icky kissing stuff and not nearly enough macho men swaggering around impressing other manly men with their manliness. Testosterone poisoning at its finest. Writing at its....well...not so finest. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 shay | 1/27/2014

    " took me a long time to get into this book, but once i did i really enjoyed it. it tells the story of a group of officers in the ww2 (and after) army. good military fiction. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 David Harrell | 1/26/2014

    " Great beginning to a great series "

    " When Joe recommended this book, I didn't want to read it because I thought it was another historical fiction book about war. This book is not about war at all, but about the characters Griffin masterfully creates. This book made me laugh nightly because of how it pokes fun of the military. If you've ever served, you've met people like these guys in the military, and you've been in similar situations as what they face. My favorite character is Lowell, a snot-nosed rich kid who gets kicked out of West Point only to get himself commissioned as an officer because a General wants him on his polo team! Lowell ends up becoming the rebelious, daring , and combat savvy hero of Greece post-WWII at age 19. Griffin's descriptions of Lowell at Officer functions, and interacting with "desk officers" is classic. I can't wait to read "Captains"! "

    " So far this book is a great disappointment. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alan Rowoth | 1/13/2014

    " I wanted to give this series 3 and a half stars, but I couldn't quite see my way to four. It's pretty compelling while I am reading them. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 J.W. Thompson | 12/3/2013

    " Read this book years ago---I buy and read every book this author writes. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eric | 11/6/2013

    " Not really my cup of tea but an interesting read nonetheless. Can't say the ending surprised me all that much. Don't think I'll read any others in the series though. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Terry Thomas | 8/24/2013

    " Great read. The first a super series. Highly recommended if you enjoy military stuff. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Guy Berg | 6/19/2013

    " Great start to a powerful series, military soap opera is probably the best description for the series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Murray Sullivan | 6/10/2013

    " setting the tone for another great series. He has a complete understand of the history of the military in war "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Luke | 5/23/2013

    " The first book in a series chronicling a military families service thru the years. The military service is really just the authors choice of day job for the aristocratically bent WASP families populating his story. To be honest, I think I'm of the wrong generation for this story "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rick Matson | 4/1/2013

    " I've read most of the Brotherhood series. I wish I could be a lieutenant again yet know what I know now. The early books in the series used sexual situations that Griffin did not see as necessary later. But a great read. I would recommend this book and the series to any one considering serving. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Richard | 3/22/2013

    " Spare time reading in college... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Russianwitch | 3/3/2013

    " I went through this series in my 'all things military' phase which lasted quit a while. I think most of the politics which would make the books interesting to me now got missed by my 15 year old self reading them. But I do remember enjoying them regardless but not enough to reread them. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Taylor Waldron | 10/26/2012

    " Stupid and pointless did not finish it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Weylin | 10/2/2012

    " Eeeeh......something about this book makes it easy to read. Nothing really happens in the way of a story line, but the characters are fun to read "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David | 9/19/2012

    " This is really a 4.5 book. There is nothing that I do not like about the book - the writing, the characters, the story. I particularly liked the story. It brings back many good memories of when I was an Ensign. Military life is military life no matter the branch. I really could not put it down. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Emily | 9/16/2012

    " This series is like a gateway drug to the reading sloth in the middle of a cold winter. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Troy | 9/16/2012

    " The first in the great Brotherhood of War series of books. This is the one where the main characters that appear throughout the series are introduced. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Terence | 6/4/2012

    " I thoroughly enjoyed the whole Brotherhood of War series and have read them all at least twice. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jimmy | 5/28/2012

    " Started really slow but I was hooked by the end. Guess I'll have to read book 2. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Fredrick Danysh | 4/24/2012

    " War novel by the writer who wrote the series of novels based on the Marine Corps. Identifies with junior army officers during World War II. It was good, but I enjoyed the Corps more. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shannon | 2/16/2012

    " One of the best series I have EVER read.....I still go back atleast once a year a reread them. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Scott Vanzandt | 2/3/2012

    " Read these years ago, but I read the Whole Series. Great look inside the Army and Army life. "
