    One thought on “Secret Honor”

    1. Good story lineSaga continues just down loaded the next in the series. Story line continues successfully from the previous book. Look forward to the next book

    2. Interesting plot based on WWII history, and setting in Argentina. A man's book with lots of machismo. I gotta keep reading the series, though to see what happens with the characters.

    3. W.E.B. Griffin's writing is generally good, though he seems to get a weird thrill of throwing in superfluous sex scenes every few chapters. This one ended it for me, though, when the author justifies an affair in order to preserve secrets when the context is clearly just about having another superfluous sex scene.

    4. If you've read the first two of this series-- don't bother reading the first 120 pages or so of this one. All it does is recap the emotions, actions, and feelings of the first two books, and in a wordy, almost boring fashion.The remainder of this review will be listed as pros and cons Pro: The author manages to employ a number of cool historical characters and goes to great lengths to distinguish between those of German descent and those who are true Nazis. The characters add depth and breadth t [...]

    5. I am really getting hooked on this series. Having finally found and read the first volume in the seri\es, I went to the library and gathered up the next four and I am happily plowing through them when I should be working.Major Freiherr (Baron) Hans-Peter von Wachstein is working very hard on keeping his skirts clean so that all the other Germans at the German Embassy won’t realize that he is the one that revealed to Cletus where the special shipment of valuables for funding Operation Phoenix w [...]

    6. Jorge Frade Killed, Cletus Marries Donotea and the Nazi Witch Hunt. Following the disaster in Samboronbon Bay, the Nazis have Jorge Frade killed, followed soon by the unsuccessful assassin of Clete, who is warned off by Peter, thus cementing their friendship. After the attempt, Dorotea is pissed and attacks Clete, resulting in her losing virginity and getting pregnant. The Nazis shuffle embassy personnel and hatch a witch hunt that snares Peter, who destroys Alicia's viriginity and impregnation [...]

    7. i always enjoy W.E.B. Griffin's books because his characters are intereting and well fleshed out. He has written a lot of different series and one of my favorites is the Honor series about Cletus Frade and the OSS activities in Argentina and South America during WWII. I read this one, the third of the series, out of order, having already read the 4th 5th and 6th ones. Now that the 7th one is out i will go back and read one and two. I could easily see a movie or even TV series on these characters [...]

    8. This was my first Griffin book that I have read. Hopefully his other books are more interesting, because I have a stack of them to get through. I did not know this one was book 3 of the Honor Series. Maybe I would have got a little more out of if if I had read the 2 prior books. The first part of this book started off well, but then it just goes downhill into drawn out boring chapters with some good ones mixed in from time to time. I was going to give up on it half way through, but I hate giving [...]

    9. As with the three others I've read in this series (I accidentally read the fifth one first, not realizing it was part of a series), I really liked the story and the history involved as I really don't know all that much about Argentina's history. I did NOT like all the sex and really tried to skip those parts when I could see them coming. I felt more suspense in this book than in the others as I worried through the book about the outcome for one of the heroes and it was a real cliffhanger.

    10. I couldn't finish this, it was not my thing. The initial plot was not enough hook me in. Far too many relationships, positions, ranks + names of ships + people for my sleepy head to keep track of so I gave up! I read one other WEB Griffin book following this, it had a similarly heavy slant on names + ranks + locations, but I was interestest in learning a little about the Korean conflict. As the subject matter was more interesting I persevered.

    11. Very little action. A lot of positioning by all the players. Von Wachstein gets caught in the end which leaves one eager for the next book. The most exciting part was when Clete told Almond he would shoot him and then left him in Bariloche. Can't wait

    13. Strange how much of this "could" be true. Sure there was much of this from real german people who hated the Nazis!!

    14. I enjoy these books emensely. Yes, there are some minor flaws but I think that's a matter of taste. I still like all of the characters and the Argentine point of view about WW2 is interesting.
