Synopsis: Bestselling author William F. Buckley, Jr., offers a terrific new novel—in the gloriously gripping tradition of Howard Fast, Irwin Shaw, and Jeffery Archer—of men and women caught between the force of history and the power of their own desires.
Italy, 1944. Pfc. Danny O'Hara and Pfc. Henry Chafee are part of a regiment ordered to attack a German unit north of Rome. But at the critical moment, one young man's courage fails him. Court-martial and shame are averted only by the other's apparently valiant effort to cover for him. A complex lifelong bond is thus forged between two men who seem an unlikely match. Henry is the son of a widowed librarian, quiet, studious, devoted to his sister, Caroline. Danny is gregarious, charming, aglow with the glamour of wealth and privilege. He is also the President's grandson. Brothers No More is the sweeping story of the lives and times of these two men—one searching to redeem his courage and resolve, the other undone by his own ambition and greed—both spellbound by the devout and beautiful Caroline. From the European theater of World War II to the deadly jungles of Vietnam, from the verdant lawns of Yale to the glittering casinos of the French Riviera, from the intimate warmth of a suburban home to the most rarefied corridors of corporate power, Brothers No More spans continents and decades to touch on some of the most significant events in modern history.
With the masterful storytelling power, sophisticated wit, and deft blend of fact and fiction that have won William F. Buckley, Jr., legions of devoted readers around the world, Brothers No More is an unforgettable novel of honor, betrayal, and faith.
