I had hoped that this would be one of my favorite of the books because the cover indicated that it dealt with the Philippines. If the reader has read Mr. Griffin's THE CORPS series, its the 7th in the Series - BEHIND THE LINES, which is from the point of view of MacArthur. Between the two versions it is rather obvious what the facts are and what is embellished by the author as to the establishment of credibility of the American forces on the Island of Mandingo - both rely on early China US personnel. In the Corps its Frank Knox's eyes & ears with the China Marines: McCoy - a "sharp, natural spy" like Canidy but without the rank or authority, who has a buddy similar to Chief Ellis, a China Marine in service for Donovan. In this book the connection to the band of "General Fertig commanding in the Philippines is Jim Whittaker, a pilot out of Pearl, who had been stranded on the peninsula but airlifted out with MacArthur. Similiar to Ed Banning in The Corps. That said, a good part of this book also deals with getting Fulmer and his scientist out of Europe with the attendant back story. We also get to know Darmstadter who will appear later in Algers and Siciliy.
Mr. Griffin spends considerable time reiterating Jim Whittaker's personal back story as he flies to Cairo. This is one aspect of the writer that tends to prevent me from judging his writing GREAT. Each book tries to present a stand-alone story, however to the faithful reader that can mean certain segments may be retold as many as 3 or 4 over that many books in a series like MEN AT WAR or THE CORPS. We also meet on of Stan Fine's movie stars and Jim finds himself demanding Cynthia be his control in order to prevent her from qualifying to go operational. All in all, there is very little of the actual operation on the Philippines and except for the occassional mention in backstory, this will be the last heard from of Mr. Whittaker in this series up to the book Spymaster. I don't think any more works have been published.

I can't really say enough about W.E.B. Griffin. I first read his series "The Corps" while in college and about to enter the Marines myself. Ever since then I have been a fan. This series more about the Army Air Corps and Navy, but It makes them seem alright! Well worth the read.

I enjoyed this one a lot. In particular it was very cool to learn the story of the true-to-life hero General Fertig. Talk about guts and determination! The storyline on this one is a bit uneven -- it really has two completely separate plots and I really think that each deserved its own novel. No spoilers here, but you will likely see what I mean. Nonetheless, this one is a reading pleasure. RJB.

I'm only half way done with this particular WEB Griffin book, but it is pretty good and keeps me reading. Mr Griffin has a formula for his military books that changes very little from book to book, but I keep coming back for more. Good and varied amount of characters, male and female. Although books of fiction he does follow historical facts. Anyone enjoying books on the military will enjoy WEB Griffin.

I am generally a fan of the various Griffin series, but I just can't like this book. It's the first Griffin book I wasn't really eager to get back to reading.

I think my biggest problem is the fragmented way that two stories are being told. We get a few pages each in different locations telling what's happening on an operation in Europe from several viewpoints. That's fine and somewhat normal for Griffin. The problem is that these snippets are also interspersed with some reports on what's happening on a different operation in the Pacific. With minor exceptions, the only connection is that they are occurring at the same time. Neither of them depends on the other in any way that I could see. This organization both detracts from the flow and reduces the space which could have been spent on either operation.

It also seems that this series isn't as well developed as The Corps and Brotherhood of War.

Great read with much more action than in later Griffin novels. The reader feels part of the story.

I discovered W.E.B. Griffin in the eighties after a four year stint in the Middle East and eleven years Active Duty in the Army. I would find out when the next release of a Griffin book was due and as soon as I got off work, I would get to the bookstore, buy the book, and I would finish reading it before work the next day. That ment I would get little or no sleep, but it was worth it.

I have now obtained Griffins books on Kindle so I don't have to store all the hardcover and paperbacks. You can read any one of Griffins books as a stand alone, but why would you? Each Griffin sries will give you day's and week's of pleasure, (over and over again for me).

Discovering a new series by Griffin is a great excitement. I bought the first 4 books in the series and am enjoying them greatly. Many of the same characters appear as in previous books but it is well written and vintage Griffin. Stay away from the later books in the series that are by butterworth. Those are turkeys - badly written - and definitely not worth reading. The Men at War series is not one of Griffin's strongest. But it is more than adequate for casual reading.
