I wasn't sure what to expect with this book but it grabbed my attention from the first paragraph. It's an inside look at going through Marine Corps boot camp in all it's detail. I'm normally not into military books but this one I just couldn't put down. It follows the lives of several recruits from the moment they get on the bus through training. Very interesting!

this is a good book on the marine corps boot camp. I had a brother who entered the marines, and I read about what he was going through as he was going through it. It was very informative.
