It was more than an incident. It was a deadly assault across the 38th parallel. It was the Korean War. In the fear and frenzy of battle, those who had served with heroism before were called again by America to man the trenches and sandbag bunkers. From Pusan to the Yalu, they drove forward with commands too new and tanks too old: brothers in war, bonded together in battle as they had never been in peace...

Baker & Taylor
A hard-bitten team of United States Army officers faces the dangers of the Korean War while confronting life-threatening challenges that could ruin or further their careers. Reissue.

This author's works are highly desirable and well respected by a lot of the mature male society as well as women interested in this part of historical fiction and ought to be available in the audio format.

The Lieutenants by W.E.B. Griffin was excellent so it is very disappointing to not be able to have the series available.

There continues to be a need to not overlook interests of all age groups and recognize the well known growing interest in audio CD's for the long distance traveller.

Great book. I'm not into books about war but Griffin brings his characters to life and suddenly the war events become simply a backstory to a great plot with superb writing
