Publisher's Summary

The spectacular new book in New York Times best-selling author W.E.B. Griffin's Honor Bound saga of World War II espionage.

Wars come to an end. But then new ones begin. Just weeks after Hitler's suicide, Cletus Frade and his colleagues in the OSS find themselves up to their necks in battles every bit as fierce as the ones just ended. The first is political - the very survival of the OSS, with every department from Treasury to War to the FBI grabbing for its covert agents and assets. The second is on a much grander scale: the possible next world war, against Joe Stalin and his voracious ambitions.

To get a jump on the latter, Frade has been conducting a secret operation, one of great daring - and great danger - but to conduct it and not be discovered, he and his men must walk a perilously dark line. One slip, and everyone becomes a casualty of war.

Classic W.E.B. and Brick's narration wins big.

This is a wonderfully entertaining addition to the extremely enjoyable OSS series. The author(s) rank at the top of the military-historical fiction genre and this story continues the well-deserved legacy. Scott Brick is one of my favorite narrators possessing a polished ease of delivery that makes any story he reads come to life. This is, as I had hoped for and expected, another carefully researched and detailed narrative. The characters are tightly and skillfully interlaced with the actual historical timeline. I was extremely pleased with the story, the excellent quality of the audio production and Mr. Brick's exceptional skills as a narrator. Highly recommended and a must-read for W.E.B. fans.

Victory and Honor

Scott Brick does a great job narrating this series. This was a good book, the pace moved right along and their was some action but much less than other books in the series. This book had much more suspense involved in the storyline. This is one of the few Griffin books that brought a tear to my eye toward the end of the book. I had just read a book about Harry Truman creating the CIA so when it showed up in the story line I felt very knowledgeable. Can not wait for the next book in the series. You will not waste a book credit if you choose this book.

No mas Argentina!

While I like the author’s Argentina “Honor” series very much overall, the story lines have gotten pretty thin and it’s probably time to put the old girl to rest. Victory and Honor is #6 in the series about O.S.S. operations in WWII South America. While the war ended sometime in #5, for some reason, the story continues into this volume….. and the next – I see #7, Empire and Honor just got published. This all seems to be about the author providing a writing career for his son, listed as a co-author on all Griffin series for the last few years. Even the WWII USMC series continues on into the Korean War. When will it all end? Who knows? Who cares? Suffice it to say, I’m already pot-committed, I.e. I’m all in, as are thousands of other Griffin fans. We keep buying the books because it’s very much like reading letters about family and old friends – you want to know what happens to them, however mundane and trivial. He brilliantly tosses in a few morsels of new info amid the pages and pages of chronicling daily life. For example, I became very happy when Griffin finally had the Navy dock Cletus Frade’s pay for the chronograph watch he never turned in after returning from Guadalcanal three years earlier in the story. And an even bigger nugget, he referenced the only crossover character in all of Griffin’s books, I.e. Lt. Colonel Clyde W. Dawkins – WOW! That’ll make the Griffin geeks keep coming back for more. I would never suggest anyone read a Griffin book as a stand-alone – it’s really about the journey and understanding the Griffin formula. On to Empire and Honor to find out what Cletus Frade is having for breakfast…..

Outstanding Read

First book I have listened to of the honor bound series. Will not be the last. Well performed, well written and exciting historical fiction. Enjoyed the characters, the plot and writing. Did not want it to end.

Victory and Honor

I am so disappointed. I expected more of the wonderful saga, but Victory and Honor fell short.

Good but a little short

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Scott Brick does not do well with non English books, he strugles with foreign words and accents.

Love it.

Best reader of any book I’ve ever listened to. Period. Wish he’d do all of them. Some of them are terrible.

A little far fetched

Of course, with these writers, all the heroes are independently wealthy. A lot of high end hotels, drinking and fornicating. But, no smoking. We can’t have that. Although, everyone did.

Some technical mistakes also. Jimmy Stewart didn’t fly B17’s. He flew the much understated and Hollywood hated B24.

But, it’s a story.

Entertaining if you don’t know history or care.

Series has become too Commercial

What should have been one book has been broken up into several so each could be charged for. The previous ones at least has a reasonable ending but this one just stopped midstream.
That being said, they are still enjoyable.
