Last of the WEB Griffin "Corps" series, this is another fast read with a good story line having a backdrop against 20th C. American History. Thoroughly enjoyed it.
Book #9 in The Corps Series. Hubby is a former Marine (once a Marine, always a Marine) He has really enjoyed this series, described by The Orlando Sentinel as "an insider's tale of life in the Marine Corps. This book enters a new stage of modern warfare - with new weapons, new strategies, and a new breed of warrior - on the battlefields of Korea.
June 1, 1950, Capt. McCoy's report on probable N. Korean hostilities meets with so much bureaucratic displeasure that not only is it promptly suppressed, but McCoy himself is kicked out of the Corps. Pickering and his daredevil son Malcolm, and friends and their sweethearts and wives will acquire a new bloody reality, and Korea will become not only a new battlefireld, but their greatest challenge of all.
All the pieces come together in dramatic fashion as only W.E.B. Griffin could do.
In 1950, Captain Ken McCoy's report on North Korean hostilities meets with so much bureaucratic displeasure that he is promply booted out ot the Corps-and just as promply picked up by the CIA.
Hubby says great read. Lots of action.
This is book nine in a ten book series. I the whold series long ago and am now reading it again. I love this author. This series of books is magnificent. I love them all.
If you enjoy military tales about WW2,this is the book for you.No one can describe the military better than W.E.B.Griffin,McCoy and friends will keep you up most of the night.
Very enjoyable action war story.
