The book you refer to was "The Captains." As a matter of information,
W.E.B. Griffin's real name is William A. Butterworth, and he is a Korean
War Vet. He was a combat infantryman until they discovered he was a court
reporter/stenographer and assigned him to Gen. I.D. White as the general's
stenographer.. Result was he was a very young Master Sergeant. He went to
helicopter school at Ft. Riley, graduating as a warrant officer, then was
with Combat Developments at Rucker. Thus, you see a lot of his experience
in the Brotherhood of War Series.
A sidebar is, he also wrote the MASH series under a different pen name.
