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!"

Three OSSers attempt to disable a German submarine tender in neutral Argentine waters. But, that's only about 1/10 of the book. The rest is a soap opera. It's also notable that the technology is of the WWII period.

I've heard Griffin's stories called "Romance novels for guys". Ohhhh, welll, yeah, I guess so, especially with the first stories of a series when all the characters are being developed. The romance angles *usually* are more brief as war stories increase (or police stories increase in another series). It's a good break from the much more intense, and conventional, military books I read. It's a good read.

Decent novel on World War II South American sideshow on US officer to keep out Nazi Germany influence via OSS (predecessor to CIA).
