Griffin, who is a master of weaving fiction and history into a seamless narrative, succeeds again in this fourth episode of his Men at War series. Replete with Griffin's usual assortment of hard and colorful characters, this work, which takes place in 1942-43, depicts the escape of a German atomic scientist from Hungary, as well as the initial contact of the Army with American guerillas operating in the Philippines. Stephen Lang, who has performed a number of Griffin's works, has a versatile voice. He ably performs a variety of accents and reads the foreign words in the narration with skill. His crisp, clear voice does well in reading the various documents the author inserts to give context to the action. Even the music and sound effects do not distract from the production. M.T.F.
