The invasion of North Africa has begun. In Washington, OSS chief William J. Donovan finds himself fighting a rear-guard battle against an unexpected enemy: the rival intelligence chiefs back home. In Morocco, Second Lieutenant Eric Fulmar waits in the desert for a car containing two top-level defectors - or will it be full of SS men instead? In England, Major Richard Canidy gets the mission of his life: to penetrate into the heart of Germany and bring out the man with the secret of the jet engine, before the Germans grab hold of him. In France, the Allies must find a way to branch the seemingly impregnable German submarine pans at Saint-Lazare. The only hope? An experimental, pilotless flying bomb. Or at least that's what a lieutenant named Joseph P. Kennedy, Jr., thinks....

    While this story is alright, it is not exceptional. 5 of 10 stars

    This series is one continuous narrative about the OSS on WWII. Therefore, what I said about the last one still holds. Which is to say it's still wonderful. The only way I can get back to what I should be doing is to finish the whole series as fast as I can. This is Friday and this book is the third of ( think) four, so I should be functional by Sunday.

    Volume three of Griffin's Men at War series continues the lusty, adventure-filled account of America's effort to develop the atomic bomb before the Germans can do the same.

Joe Kennedy in the plan to use a drone aircraft to destroy German submarine pens on the French coast. The main theme, however, surround the effort to smuggle a German scientist specializing in metallurgy into American hands. Griffin skillfully incorporates the growing threat posed by the success of Nazi submarine warfare on the Allied was effort in Europe, and the potential threat of jet aircraft then being developed in Germany. Introduction of jets could foil the Allied efforts to bomb important weapon manufacturing centers and prevent the development of German nuclear bombs. This is an exciting read that mixes real world strategic concerns and personalities with a fanciful group of soldier spies in the Office of Strategic Services (OSS) under the direction of Colonel Wild Bill Donovan.

    I have read (12) W.E.B. Griffin books; The Soldier Spies is one of the best written; with action packed suspenseful story I couldn’t put down. I enjoy listening to Griffin audible books; I find the readers are always talented-> however reader of The Soldier Spies is Scott Brick who may be the best narrator.

    I picked this up from a giveaway shelf not realizing it was part of a series. There were so many characters, all of which had their titles given each time their name was mentioned. I just couldn't keep track of them and didn't particularly care. I picked this up from a giveaway shelf not realizing it was part of a series.

    Enjoying this WEB Griffin book. The reading during the celebration of D-day about how young some of the officers are and how much risk they took is amazing. A good read and a lot of action. Quite enjoyable.

    Took me a while to read this as I had eye surgery in the midst of the book. A World War II thriller about spies rather than soldiers. Lots of action, but you will need a willing sense of disbelief.

    The problem with reading books in a series so close together is that you remember what happened in the previous book. So, backstory info for new readers becomes repetitive and annoying when overdone. Familiar characters return, some new characters come in. New missions are planned and begun, but in some cases the reader is left hanging until the next title in the series. And some characters disappear, not as war casualties, but seem simply to have been forgotten. A bit more action in this book t The problem with reading books in a series so close together is that you remember what happened in the previous book.

    This is a great read from a great author. This is one of the series of W.E.B. Griffin which concerns military men of WWII and the Korean War. Great historical fiction

    This is the third book in the series about the beginnings of the WWII OSS. I really enjoy this author and the behind the scenes look at history - some of his characters are a bit repetetive but not boring! The best thing about this author seems to be that he never runs out of subject matter. Politics, war, and human behavior - he could write forever.

    A thoroughly gripping novel dealing with the exploits of the OSS in Central Europe. WEB Griffin writes at such a pace that it was hard to put the book down. It is good to have the same characters in the series Men at War. You feel that you know them intimately! Highly recommended.

    Third in a series of six, The Soldier Spies has been the best book in the Griffin series so far. Set in 1943, as World War II wages on, Griffin combines actual history with a compelling account at a personal level.

    I found Soldier Spies to be quite engaging and entertaining, particularly last third of the book. My only complaint about Mr. Griffin's novel is that more action did not take place behind enemy lines until near the end.

    I was drawn in again by Griffin's masterful storytelling. Love the characters, the dialog is point on - setting and locations depicted in wonderful detail - and no one describes a coffee service, highball of scotch or a Marine breakfast better than Maestro Griffin.

    The series is picking up. Best so far in the series. Finally "Men at War" is at war, not just operating in support of one. All in all, it's a good read if you're not after anything particularly deep, and an interesting look at the subject matter. A nice diversion from my textbooks. The series is picking up.

    If you are a fan of military historical fiction, this is the author for you. Complex plots, historical accuracy, fascinating characters. They are all here. Find the first of each series and read, read, read.

    Not particularly challenging and I had no idea so many soldiers were getting laid during the war. A lot of loose ends at the end and assumptions at the beginning. This is not a standalone story, but obviously just in installment in a series.

    The story premise seemed interesting enough but the pacing was extremely slow and the novel was over loaded with boring social minutia. Not nearly enough action to hold this readers attention.

    W.E.B. Griffin, as always, does a good job in description, however, in this book is really short on action. In fact, the action only seems to be 90% of any given chapter.

    One of the better action books I've read from Griffin. The missions were very in depth and action packed. The last 30 pages were a great read with Fulmar's trip into Germany. Really love this series. One of the better action books I've read from Griffin. The missions were very in depth and action packed. The last 30 pages were a great read with Fulmar's trip into Germany.
