The fourth volume of W. E. B. Griffin's electrifying bestselling saga of the OSS during World War. Originally published under the pen name Alex Baldwin and never before available in hardcover, the Men at War novels have proven every bit as popular as Griffin's other spectacular series. The time is early l943: In the Philippines, a ragtag American guerrilla army battles the Japanese, under a most unusual commander. In Budapest, an agent must keep two key prisoners from being interrogated by the Gestapo, his only choices being to rescue them -- or kill them. In Washington, an Army Air Corps captain suddenly finds himself assigned deep under the sea, his mission an improbable one of submarines, supplies, arms, and gold. And in Cairo, an undistinguished pilot named Darmstadter wonders why in the world the OSS is interested in his services, only to find out in the most dramatic way possible --and become a hero in the process. Everywhere adventure crackles, fueled by the narrative realism, rich characters, and special flair for the military heart and mind that have always made Griffin's novels unique. The Fighting Agents is further proof that "Griffin rates among the best storytellers in any genre"
