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 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.
