It's 1942. A Marine aviator, an Army paratrooper and demolitions expert, and a non-com radio man are on an impossible mission for the OSS - sabotaging the resupply of German ships and submarines - by any means necessary! First Lieutenant Cletus Frade is fresh from Guadalcanal. He teams up with Second Lieutenant Anthony Pelosi and Sergeant David Ettinger for the most critical OSS operation of the war. Under the direction of the mysterious Colonel Loman, they venture into a simmering stew of German and Allied agents, collaborators, and government security thugs, of men and women hiding their pasts and plotting their futures - all in supposedly neutral city of Buenos Aires. Honor Bound is the latest crackling wartime adventure from the author of Close Combat, Brotherhood of War, Badge of Honor, and The Corps Series whom Tom Clancy calls "a storyteller in the grand tradition!"… (mer)

I've procrastinated in reading this book for several years...not wanting to begin a 21+ hour book leading to a 130 hour series. But, here goes... We get to know most of the characters pretty well. Three OSSers attempt to disable a German submarine tender in neutral Argentine waters. But, that's only abou 1/10 of the book. The rest is a soap opera. It's also notable that the technology is of the WWII period. Fun read. ( )

"An officer is honor bound to face whatever hazards his duty requires; not throw his life, or that of his men, away."

"Honor Bound" takes an interesting mix of colorful characters, wartime intrigue, blends them together in an uncommon World War II location, that results in a fairly deep and fun book. Based mostly in Buenos Aires, prolific military writer, W.E.B. Griffin does a good job of creating fairly fleshy characters, and creating a unique WWII thriller.

It's a little hard to even characterize this book. There's not a ton of military action, though it's clear that Griffin is passionate about the subject, as well as his adopted home of Argentina. The primary characters are just short of cliche's, but neither are they totally unique. ( )

This had some interesting direction. When thinking of WW2, how many people think of Argentina? Not I. So they're fascist, but is that so bad? So the OSS operating in a neutral country was different. 550 pages, 538 of them devoted to establishing the characters and their relationships, 12 pages left over for the operation. Like I said, Griffin writes WW2 soap operas, I just happen to like them.
I also learned the name of the head of German Intelligence. It made watching 'The Eagle has Landed' a little richer.

Three American soldiers, drawn from different branches of the miltary, have just received an assignment from the OSS, the CIA’s predecessor. Their personal and professional lives become entangled as they form into a cohesive team. Together they are tasked with destroying ships of the “neutral” Argentinian government that are supplying German U-boats, without causing any offense which would cause Argentina to declare itself for the Germans. While the German agents work to ensnare Argentina, a conspiracy is afoot in Germany to assassinate Hitler who is becoming increasingly unstable. The four-book series promises to be an epic espionage story of World War 2 set in a uncommon theatre, where the players find the bonds of duty, honor, and patriotism are not always the same as loyalty to one’s own government or superiors.
