Publisher's Summary

June 1941. Determined that the United States will be prepared for war, Franklin D. Roosevelt and "Wild Bill" Donovan orchestrate the most complex espionage organization in history, the Office of Strategic Services. Young and daring, the OSS assemble under a thin camouflage of diplomacy and then disperse throughout the world to conduct their operations. And no operation is more critical than the one being conducted by hotshot pilot Richard Canidy and his half-German friend Eric Fulmar: to secure the rare ore that will power a top-secret weapon coveted on both sides of the Atlantic - the atomic bomb.

Horrible acting job by the narator.

What disappointed you about The Last Heroes?

The narator's voice was painful to listen to with his nasal twang. He struggled to change his vioce to do different charactors. I couldn't even get thirty minutes into it before I had try another book. Hopefully the book in this series that Scott Brick narates will be better. I've heard him narate in several other books and he does a fantastic job of creating charactors. I have listened to several other books of W.E.B. Griffen and really enjoyed them.


What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

I couldn't finish it.


Would you be willing to try another one of Michael Russotto’s performances?

Never.


You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

I'm not sure, I couldn't get passed the narotor.

Any additional comments?

I have listened to all of the WW2 series. I love them. But if the narrator is the same, i will not buy more.
