My husband loved this book, so did my Dad and his Dad!
Typically good Griffin writing!!
For the lovers of military fiction,although sometimes I found it hard to believe that the book was fiction,McCoy and crew are the greatest.No one should read this book if you have not read the entire series,marines,avaitors,war,charactors that you can believe.No one writtung today is in the same class as Griffin.
