  4. I remember reading a smattering of Executioner novels as a youngster, and reminiscing about how much I enjoyed them I recently bought a bunch of old Pendleton titles Of the first several novels in the series, War Against the Mafia still stands out as my clear favorite The action is hard hitting, and the story moves quickly while still taking the time to establish the characters and settings.Another thing that struck me while reading this is how morally murky The Executioner s beginnings are I remember reading a smattering of Executioner novels as a youngster, and reminiscing about how much I enjoyed them I recently bought a bunch of old Pendleton titles Of the first several novels in the series, War Against the Mafia still stands out as my clear favorite The action is hard hitting, and the story moves quickly while still taking the time to establish the characters and settings.Another thing that struck me while reading this is how morally murky The Executioner s beginnings are By that, I don t mean that Bolan himself comes across as confused or morally conflicted Rather, the series of events that leads to him becoming The Executioner are realistically tangled The mob doesn t kill his family they drive his father to commit a terrible act of murder and suicide His sister isn t forced to become a pr...

  5. This is one of the times where it s okay to judge a book by its cover, as it s just as cheap and pulpy as it looks Still, I had fun with this one I can t resist a wronged ultra badass on an epic mission of revenge story and this is apparently one of the classics, even going so far as to inspire the fucking PUNISHER this information gleaned from my Goodreads friend Mike I mean, if this dude was the inspiration for the wind of death that is Frank Castle you know I have to check this out An This is one of the times where it s okay to judge a book by its cover, as it s just as cheap and pulpy as it looks Still, I had fun with this one I can t resist a wronged ultra badass on an epic mission of revenge story and this is apparently one of the classics, even going so far as to ins...

  7. War against the Mafia is probably the most influential Men s Adventure novel ever Published the same year as Mario Puzo s the Godfather, it also deals with the Cosa Nostra or Italian Mafia However, this is not a gangster story like the Godfather This is a revenge story.The plot is very straightforward Protagonist Mack Bolan comes home from Vietnam to find his family ruined by Mafia loan sharks He declares war on the Mafia in Pittsfield where he lives He infiltrates them in Act 1 In Ac War against the Mafia is probably the most influential Men s Adventure novel ever Published the same year as Mario Puzo s the Godfather, it also deals with the Cosa Nostra or Italian Mafia However, this is not a gangster story like the Godfather This is a revenge story.The plot is very straightforward Protagonist Mack Bolan comes home from Vietnam to find his family ruined by Mafia loan sharks He declares war on the Mafia in Pittsfield where he lives He infiltrates them in Act 1 In Acts 2 and 3 he destroys them.However, Don Pendleton improves the story with a few well placed sub plots There is a police mole in the Mafia, and it is a major plot twist when the reader finds out who it is It works be...

  8. It s so hard to rate books like this but I tend to be conservative in my ratings unless a book blows me away completely I liked it and it was a rather decent pulpy adventure action story Mack Bolan, at least in this first volume, comes across as arighteous Parker with a similar vendetta against the Mob On the plus side, I found the action sequences gripping and well written and the character of Mack Bolan agreeable The major flaw in this novel was that I often found myself unable to su It s so hard to rate books like this but I tend to be conservative in my ratings unless a book blows me away completely I liked it and it was a rather decent pulpy adventure action story Mack Bolan, at least in this first volume, comes across as arighteous Parker with a similar vendetta against the Mob On the plus side, I found the action sequences gripping and well written and the charac...

  9. I first read this book back in March of 1973 as a young sailor in the Coast Guard I went to a bookstore newsstand and picked it up for about 1.25 or so Loved it And I got hooked on action thrillers from that point on.Classic story that might seem outdated now, but it does reflect the times in which it was written 1969 I think the first 38 or so Mack Bolan books were written by Don Pendleton before he just became a co writer or director of the series.I still like this book Picked up 1 fr I first read this boo...
