Kurzbeschreibung

They were the professionals, the men who had been toughened by combat in the mine-laden fields of Europe, in Korea, in Greece, in Indochina. Now, in the twilight of a dying decade, they must return to the United States to forge a new type of American soldier--one to be tested on the beaches of Cuba and in a new war yet to come...

Synopsis

Returning from the mine-laden fields of combat in the Far East, Paul T. Hanrahan is promoted to full colonel and assigned to command the U.S. Army Special Warfare School, where his men train for a new war on the beaches of Cuba. Reissue.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Colonels und andere Offiziere 17. Dezember 2005
Von kyrrdis
Format:Taschenbuch
Der Koreakrieg ist zu Ende, dafür beginnt es in Vietnam langsam ernst zu werden. Unsere Freunde sorgen sich wie üblich um ihre Karrieren und erhalten wohlverdiente Beförderungen – oder auch nicht. Mittendrin wie meistens ein junges Liebespaar. Man kann gespannt sein, ob diese beiden ihr Glück finden dürfen.
Eines der Hauptereignisse in diesem Buch ist die Bildung der Spezialeinheit "Green Berets", unter deren Reihen sich nach und nach fast alle aus der "Bruderschaft" wiederfinden.
Am Ende steht die Schweinebucht und ein paar der seltenen Actionszenen. Die dafür haben es in sich und lassen den Leser an den Fingernägeln kauen.
"The Colonels" reiht sich schön ein in die Serie und liest sich komplett von selbst.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Understanding Viet Nam 3. Februar 2000
Format:Taschenbuch
I enjoyed all of Griffin's Brotherhood of War and Corps books; however, the first part of this one helped me to understand some of the build up to the Viet Nam conflict. I grew up during the pre-Viet Nam conflict era but wasn't old enough or interested enough at the time to pay attention to the causes. This book (along with Tom Dooley's [spelling?]) filled in a lot of the holes.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A Solid Mid-Series Book 6. Juni 2004
Von A. Bowdoin Van Riper - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Following a dozen major characters and twice that many supporting players through an eventful a quarter century is an impressive literary achievement. Griffin's "Brotherhood of War" series does just that: always competently, sometimes brilliantly. The flashes of brilliance are fewer and farther between in _The Colonels_ than they were in _The Lieutenants_ and _The Captains_, but they're definitely *there* in a way that they weren't in _The Majors_.
The action in _The Colonels_ takes place in the late 1950s and early 1960s. The central thread of the plot is the establishment of the Green Berets, and most of the book's best scenes revolve around the shaping of the Green Beret program. The book ends with the disastrous US-backed attempt to overthrow Fidel Castro by landing a force of Cuban exiles at the Bay of Pigs--an operation in which many of the characters play peripheral roles. Griffin keeps old plotlines in play, but also takes the time to service a number of characters who were in danger of slipping out of the story: notably Barbara Bellmon, Paul Jiggs, and Phil Parker IV.
Griffin's ear for soldiers' voices and his familiarity with military routine comes through in many individual scenes: several training exercises, an unauthorized visit to an aircraft graveyard, Mac Macmillan's chance encounter with a young lieutenant, and a running subplot about the Green Berets' distinctive headgear. The bureaucratic guerilla warfare that took up much of _The Majors_ is back, but it works better in _The Colonels_, perhaps because the outcome will affect the lives, not just the careers, of people we care about.
_The Colonels_ ultimately fails, however, to hit the same heights that _The Lieutentants_ and _The Captains_ reached. Part of the problem may be the time frame it covers. _The Lieutenants_ had the shift from WWII to the Cold War; _The Captains_ had Korea; _The Colonels_ has the Bay of Pigs, but not yet Vietnam. Especially when it strays from the "building the Green Berets" thread, it often feels like it's just marking time.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great Series 12. Oktober 2010
Von Michael Gallagher - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I've read this series several times over the last 20 years or so, and just started it again after a 5+ year layoff. Reading it again I've forgotten how good of a storyteller Griffin was before writing with his son in his last few books. While this one sets the stage for each of his other series (i.e., Corps, Vigilantes, Philadelphia police series) with a rich guy who always bucks the system to beat up the bad guy, with this one you have good character developmet and dialogue, and get a history of the Army from WWII through Vietnam - Korea, tank development, army aviation, Green Berets, you name it.

I always liked rooting for Lowell, and each of us has a very tight stickler to the rules Bellmon in our lives - Griffin portrays his characters similar to people ni each of our lives.

Reading each book in this series is well worth it - wish I could say the same about his latest books with Butterworth the IV!

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Colonels - An Army Series at its best 2. Januar 2009
Von ROBIN MCCALL - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
This book is part of a series about Army warriors. For anybody interested in the U.S. Army, and the many good guys that defend our country, there is no better author than Griffin. He tells you about the good and the bad, and gives great examples of both. His books are like real life, because they follow soldiers and their families through their careers, with some dying, and others entering to take their place.

The book takes place in the late 1950s and early 1960s. The central theme is the establishment of the Green Berets. The book ends with the Bay of Pigs disaster. Griffin brings back old friends and has them making new friends.

If you like a great series about the Army, the Brotherhood of War is the best, and the Colonels reflects the marvelous insider knowledge that Mr. Griffin has of the inner workings of the Army. I keep buying more and more military history books to figure out which people and events are real, which are fictional, and which are a combination of both.

You will love this book and every book in this series if you like a great book about the Army.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Outstanding book! 19. Juli 2004
Von I.M. Gamer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I had found this book used, and I read through it. I've known from previous books of his that I have read that he takes military life down to the smallest detail. I'm an active duty US Marine and its refreshing to see him break down the most mundane things in military life down, because I not only find that kind of stuff funny to be broken down the way he does it, but it really helps me identify with the characters in his books, even if his books that I've read generally cover the WWII era through early Vietnam Era, although I'm sure Vets would appreciate his writing even more than I do. I have about 10 of his books, and it also helps that some of the characters are reused between books as they get promoted and move on with their careers and their interpersonal relationships.
If your a first time reader of these types of books, welcome to his world, but if you like military books, you'll like this one, especially if you are military, and even more so if you are a veteran.
