In the words of Tom Clancy, W.E.B. Griffin is a storyteller in the grand tradition, probably the best person around for describing the military community.
 
The Brotherhood of War series is a story about the US Army, Army Aviation and the Special Forces. The story follows a group of characters from early in their career immediately prior to WW II, through the post war years, into Korea, and finally into Vietnam. 
 
More than a few Army retired officers have mentioned this series should be required reading for RLOs and even WOs in starting their careers. The insights into leadership, command at all levels, and especially atrocious commanders and staff officers are essential to officer development. It will be an enjoyable read, guaranteed.
 
The paperbacks are very inexpensive, especially on eBay and would be a great Holiday present to ones self. Do read the series in order starting with the Lieutenants.
 
Happy Holidays everyone and fly safe.

I am not in but started lurking this sight when my kid branched aviation. But I have read all of the Brotherhood books as well as the Corps series by the same author. Buy far the best fiction military books I have ever read. After you get past the first chapter you cant put them down.
