WEB can spin an awesome yarn. The combat scenes and personal interplay are top notch. You feel personally invested in Craig, Sandy, Mac, and Ilse. They are living, breathing people.
The same attention to detail that brings the characters to life isn't spared elsewhere. There is so much minutia around even the smallest part of the story that it sometimes feels like your getting washed out to sea. I know its a careful balance, and I guess some people love the knowledge WEB obviously has in regards to military affairs. But for me it took away from the enjoyment of the characters and their overall journeys.
The love story between Lowell and Ilse was honestly one of my favorite things about the first book. Having her killed by a drunk driver seemed to serve no purpose and Lowell's subsequent actions didn't make any sense to me. I know he ran back to the army to escape the pain. But that also meant running from his son Peter Paul, or PP. Look at Lowells life. Mother is crazy, feels like his family abandoned him. He loves Ilse and PP, the first family he has ever had. Is he really going to leave the kid after his mother dies? I just found that to be a huge flaw in book two.
Worth reading if you like military books and well written characters, but book two had several flaws that take away from the overall enjoyment of the book.
I’s a small world is an aphorism often spoken. When applied to the armed forces and the army in particularly, it isn’t just a dictum but a truism. Army life, in any country, is entirely different that civilian life. It has its own rules, traditions, etiquette and decorum. This is doubly true in the officer’s corps. Not only the officer’s present performance is observed but also that of the past and even that of his wife and family. A soldier or officer can grab the right coat-tails and literally fly to the top. The opposite can happen if the fates don’t smile on them. There are many euphemisms used to describe this fraternity, fellowship and brotherhood. This is the second volume of the Brotherhood of War. On the 25th of June 1950, communist forces swarmed south over the 38th parallel effectively starting the Korean War. United States forces were stationed there as instructors and advisors and were taken by surprise by the speed and atrociousness of the assaults and were hard pressed to produce a response. A relatively short period of five years had elapsed since the successful conclusion of World War II but nevertheless found themselves unprepared for a new war. Officers and men were again called upon to stem the tide of tyranny as the United States emerges from its pre-WWII isolationist position to that of world power. The same characters from the book’s predecessor continue their roads to military notary and greatness. When a character dies and you find yourself mourning the loss and wiping away a tear, constantly admonishing yourself at forgetting that it is fiction, is the greatest testament to a really great novel. The Captains is not only insightful but very moving and I recommend it highly to history lovers, warmongers and pacifists alike.
