Overview

Under Fire (Corps Series #9) by W. E. B. Griffin, Scott Brick

Griffin takes his Marine heroes to Korea, in the biggest Corps novel of them all.

Through eight books, Griffin's bestselling chronicle of the Marine Corps has proven itself to be one of the country's most enduring and popular series. Now, Griffin leaves World War II behind and thrusts his readers deep into the heart of the Korean War.

June 1, 1950: Captain Ken McCoy's report on probable North Korean hostilities meets with so much bureaucratic displeasure that not only is it promptly suppressed, but McCoy himself is kicked out of the Corps. At least two outfits, however, are not impressed by such infighting: the fledgling CIA, which promptly hires McCoy, and the North Koreans, who on June 25th invade across the 38th parallel. Immediately, veterans scattered throughout military and civilian life are called up, many with only 72 hours' notice. Fleming Pickering and his daredevil son Malcolm, Ed Manning, George Hart, Jack Stecker, Jake Dillon, Ernie Zimmerman - for them and their sweethearts and wives, names such as Inchon, Pusan, and the Choisin Reservoir will acquire a new, bloody reality, and Korea will become not only a new battlefield...but their greatest challenge of all.

Filled with the crackling realism, adventure, and rich characters that are his hallmarks, Under Fire is further proof, as Tom Clancy says, that "W.E.B. Griffin is a storyteller in the grand tradition."

The weaving of facts with fiction is once again seamless. The book is action packed and the characters are believable. I look forward to more of the same

This is the second to the last in the Corps series. The history is mostly accurate and the characters mostly believable. The invasion of Inchon is portrayed beautifully. I heard the stories of this operation many times while growing up, and later; from my father who served on a destroyer in that operation. I was also privileged to meet 'The Chosen Few', a remarkable group of Veterans of the battle at the Chosen Reservoir, while I was stationed at Fort Sill, Oklahoma. Their stories of this forgotten war dovetail well with the author's storyline. If you enjoy military, history, and a good story...you have to read Griffin's works.

Love the Corps series. Have reread them more than I care to admit. Have been very disappointed that the rest of WW II was left out and it took some of the enjoyment out of the Under Fire read. WW II should be finished or my library will never be complete. Besides The 'Greatest Generation' deserves the best and the best is W.E.B Griffin
