Overview

Behind the Lines is W. E. B. Griffin's powerful novel of World War II — and the courage, patriotism, and sacrifice of those who fought it.

By 1942, the Japanese have routed the outnumbered American forces and conquered the Philippines. But deep in the island jungles, the combat continues. Refusing to surrender, a renegade Army officer organizes a resistance force and vows to fight to the last man. A Marine leads his team on a mission through the heart of enemy territory.

And the nation's proudest sons fight uncelebrated battles that will win — or lose — the war . . .

This book is for anyone who is interested in what it was really like in both the trenches and at the highest level during some of the darkest hours of WW2. W.E.B. Griffin weaves his characters, the actual major players who made the histoy, actual statements that were made by the major players etc into this book in such a way that makes it very hard to put it down before you have finished reading the book. This book is for the reader who is interested in history or military history. I would recommend that for the most enjoyment that the reader start with the first book of the series and contine reading thru to the last book of that series. I hope to have all of his books on my nook in the near future and recommend that any military book club discussion group put this book and any other book by W.E.B Griffin on its book club discussion list

As a former Marine, I found myself re-living past experiences. This series has earned all its high marks. This author has gone beyond the blood and guts of war and has presented the polical reasons for past wars and shows the complex relationship between civilian control and military application of that control.

As a fan of Griffith for well over 20 years and a voracious reader and 're-reader of all his series' I highly reccomend 'The Corps Series' to any military buff. The mixture of fiction laced with historical fact is not only educational but absolutely leaves one impatiently 'Champing at the bit' for the next offering. Does Mr. Griffth intend to continue the Marine Corps saga? I fervently hope so.
