Summary

As the Congo erupts in violent rebellion in 1964, old faces and new find themselves swept into a maelstrom of danger as the United States becomes more and more deeply involved. Husbands and wives, generals, colonels, and cocksure privates find that there is now not only a new breed of soldier, but a new breed of war - sudden, savage, played by no rules ever known before. To learn it, the men of the brotherhood must risk everything, but when the summons comes, they are ready to answer the call....

Still very enjoyable

I worried that I would like this book less given the reviews provided by many listeners, but I still found it very enjoyable despite having a new character as the primary in the story. There are tie-ins with some previous brotherhood of war characters and the story is still rich and entertaining.

Great saga

Love the writing and the storyline. I like following the characters to the series of books and learning about their lives and how they unfold with history around them.

Congo Ops

Book 8 of 9 in the "Brotherhood..." series. Good book that intertwines with "The Aviators" and set circa 1964. Again, the main characters developed well and are well traveled. There are minor errors of context, but the research is exquisite. Further, it's written from an Army perspective and isn't very joint in nature. Perhaps Special Ops did not get joint until after 1979? On to the last book of the series: "Special Ops."

Best of the Series

This is the best book in the series. However, the inaccuracies in weapons calibers continues. The inaccurate hull numbers of the USS C. Turner Joy and USS Maddox was annoying.

The story could be GOOD but the PERFORANCE is NOT!

Tried listening to the book from the start several times --- but alas I gave up!!! The reader talked so fast that it seemed as though the words ran together!

Or possible it's because I'm 78 year old! But, I do not have trouble with most other readers....
