Publisher Comments:

W.E. B. Griffin returns to his Honor Bound series set in the shadows of World War II espionage in South America…

May 1945: Just weeks after Hitler’s suicide, Cletus Frade and his colleagues in the Office of Strategic Services are fighting several new and deadly battles. The first is political—with every department from Treasury to War to the FBI grabbing for OSS covert agents and assets. The second is military—with the OSS having smuggled Germans into Argentina for years because of their knowledge of Soviet KGB agents in America’s atomic bomb program. The third concerns what might be the next world war against Red Joe Stalin and his voracious ambitions.

To get an early advantage, Frade has been conducting a secret and daring operation against the Communists. But to do it undetected, he and his men must walk a perilously dark line. Because all it takes is one slip—and everyone becomes a casualty of war.

Review:

"Diehard fans will best appreciate Griffin's slow-moving sixth Honor Bound novel, which picks up where The Honor of Spies (2009), also co-written with son Butterworth, left off in the spring of 1945. Lt. Col. Cletus Frade of the OSS, besides trying to prevent Nazis from fleeing to Argentina, is concerned with the survival of the soon-to-be-disbanded OSS and increasing tension with the U.S.S.R. The action-starved plot takes nearly 100 pages to get underway, and when it does, the drama is sporadic, choppy, and interrupted by lots of macho camaraderie. An intriguing subplot mentioned early on — a rogue Nazi U-boat that escaped Allied detection and is now chugging toward Japan with atomic secrets on board — goes nowhere. Frade, for his part, is his usual pushy, smart-alecky self and most likely destined to be a higher-up in the OSS's successor, the CIA. Techno-thriller fans will relish the detailed descriptions of weapons and aircraft. (Aug.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Synopsis:

The spectacular new book in New York Times-bestselling author W.E.B. Griffin's Honor Bound saga of World War II espionage.

Wars come to an end. But then new ones begin. Just weeks after Hitler's suicide, Cletus Frade and his colleagues in the OSS find themselves up to their necks in battles every bit as fierce as the ones just ended. The first is political-the very survival of the OSS, with every department from Treasury to War to the FBI grabbing for its covert agents and assets. The second is on a much grander scale-the possible next world war, against Joe Stalin and his voracious ambitions. To get a jump on the latter, Frade has been conducting a secret operation, one of great daring-and great danger-but to conduct it and not be discovered, he and his men must walk a perilously dark line. One slip, and everyone becomes a casualty of war.

When I hammered out my first comment, I spelled everything off the top of my head and hurridly sent it in. After reading it, I was chargrined and readers must have thought I sounded like a dilbert with spelling mistakes and confusion of dates. For the recored its Buenos Aires, the protagonists name is Frade, and I was released from Naval service in January 1968.

Flying with Pan American took me all over Europe to cities in which W.E.B. casts his characters and plots. "Victory and Honor" right off mentions Lisbon. I remember walking downhill a street(can't recall its name)on a sidewalk surfaced with bathroom size shaped inlaid tile. Coming upon an approximately two by three foot section of dirt and a few scattered tiles, I stepped around the flat hole and took a few more steps on my way. I then heard a truck pull up and stop on the street behind me and a crew of five men jumped out and immediately began repairing the hole. Their work was best described as frantic. Apparently at that time, everybody worked in Lisbon.

In the late sixties one could still see bomb damage and rubble that was not yet cleared away in Frankfort, Hamburg and Rotterdam

Sometines I think W.E.B. is looking over my shoulder. When I was flying with Pan American World Airways in the very late sixties, I spent summers going to Europe and winters flying to South America, specifically to Rio in Brazil and Buenas Aires in Argentina. Of all the cities I went to with Pan American, Buenas Aires was my favorite. W.E.B. is absolutely right on the money. BA has the best wines, and the best steaks, and the best looking women.

The "Honor Bound" series stirred up lots of memories: Walking in BA down the world's widest city street, gazing at the Pink Palace(yes its true the disgruntled contracter was tired of waiting for payment and he did dump red paint into the concrete mixer), watching the nineteenth century dressed soldiers while undergoing changing of the guard, enjoying a very hearty meal consisting of a slab of 'baby bifa' two an a half inches thick which filled the ten inch plate upon which were heaped vegetables including pappa fritas all served by Argentenian born tall, blond, blue eyed Germans, shaking my head in wonderment at the sight of workers on top of a seven story building tearing it down with sledge hammers one story at a time, watching in amazement as a car and its driver hurridly made a parking place for himself where there was no parking space by angling in behind another vehicle parked first near an intersection and pushing the parked vehicle out into the intersection, eating steak and drinking wine on ten dollars for two days because I misread my schedule and thought a particular trip was an overnight only, and a whole lot more.

As a Marine Aviator, protagonist Frada wore Naval Aviator wings of Gold which I also earned in April 1961 and subsequently flew in the Pacific till April 1964 at which time I rotated back to Pensacola(Saufley Field) and pushed students for three and a half years. I resigned my regular commission, left naval service at the end of January 1970, was hired by Pan American and was furloughed(polite term for being laid off) in January 1970. End of flying.
