Over the years I have read almost all of the Griffin books. He is one of my favorite military authors. I see now that all the books are being released on audiobooks. I decided to take the opportunity to read/listen to the books I had missed reading in the past. This book was on my list. W.E.B. Griffin takes a real situation based on history and inserts his fictional characters right along side the real historical people thus making the story very real. Eric G. Dove did a great job narrating the story. It is the first time I have heard him narrate. Most of Griffins books prior to this series were based on WWII stories. This series moves into the cold war period with Che Guevara the Cuban communist activist. Lots of flying and action in the story. Some foul language but no explicit sex as per Griffins usual method of writing. If you are a fan of military novels or a history buff you will enjoy this story. Griffin also is precise in following military protocols in this story including the famous military top secret memo format. In this book he sums up the ending of the story via after action reports and memos to Felter.

Far too much of this book, in excess of 90 minutes of listening time is virtually cut and pasted in from the previous two books in the series. There are also a number of continuity breaks in the names of minor characters from previous books in the series such as Pork Waterford's given names. Author would also have been better served by using real names from the beginning of the series where appropriate rather than starting out with a fictional name and shifting to historically accurate names later in the series. Author did a much better job of inserting his fictional characters into historical events in his series on th Corps.
