The last of the Brotherhoods was published in 1988, yet Griffin felt he had one more story to tell--this is it. After Che Guevara's failure to take over South America, due in a large part to the Green Berets, he retreated to Cuba in an effort to asssemble an army to take over Bolivia. He failed there, too. Infact, he died there. but who was trying to kill him, and who was trying to keep him alive? Special Ops picks up here and spins a story of devilish cunning and thirlling adventure.

Professional reviews

"When it comes to military stories, W.E.B. Griffin is one of the best. His latest novel continues that tradition. Readers learn of Cuban revolutionary Che Guevara, who wanted to take over Africa. When that effort failed, Guevara went back to Cuba; from there he tried--and failed--to take over Bolivia. This is the story of Guevara, who died in Bolivia and, despite his incompetence, became a martyr for his cause. Joe Morton's narration is crisp, and his voice fits the characters well. For those who enjoy adventure in a military setting, the story of who killed Guevara, and who tried to keep him alive, is an ideal choice. D.J.S. (c) AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine"
