Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
``Volume III of The Corps series covers the period from Pearl Harbor to Guadalcanal in an unorthodox fashion,'' reported PW. ``Instead of offering the usual tales of Marine heroism and sacrifice, Griffin explores the difficult adjustment of enlisted men suddenly given officers' commissions; the raising of a Marine parachute battalion; the impact of total war on peacetime routines.'' (Sept.)

very slow

W.E.B. Griffin captures all of the drama of the United States Marine Corps in his "The Corps" series. For me, this book was a bit of slow going, but enjoyable. The main disappointment was that his main character from the first tow books in the series, "Killer" McCoy is barely in the book. I was looking forward to seeing what he would be up to. However, the other characters in the book also have lives of their own that will suck you in.
