Stephen Coonts's name is in huge type on the cover, but his writing appears only in the introduction, which explains the need for historical fiction to help preserve memories of important events. The marketing ploy for this collection of WWII stories seems misleading, but the two short novels featured are exciting character-based war dramas that stress the personalities behind the action and live up to the mission explained by Coonts. Dean Ing writes of espionage in the Army-Air Force, while James Cobb's entry follows the search for a Japanese radar station. Readers Eric Conger and Ron McLarty do an excellent job of getting into the minds of their protagonists. Listeners who enjoy short fiction should look beyond the cover and check out VICTORY. J.A.S.
