    While I have read other books regarding the people in this book,this was a good account of what happened prior to the other things that happened to k. McCoy.

    This is probably the 10th time I've read this book. Griffin never fails to capture my attention with his incredible ability to develop characters and describe their normal day-to-day activities. I can't recommend this book - or this series highly enough.

    I stumbled onto this author and loved the book. Just finished it which left me with two hours sleep. Going to read more samples tonight unfortunately.

    This book is not up to Griffin's standards. The story is not well developed. Especially did not like the way it ended. It just stopped suddenly. Was disappointed with the book. Not worth the money!
  • Another great book from W.E.B. Griffin

    Another great book from W.E.B. Griffin. I only wish two things: 1. That the books were longer, so I could keep reading, and 2. That I had read Griffin's books in some semblance of order.

    I'm a former Jarhead, and this book just has the right feel. The author has done a good job of capturing the essential nature of the Corps. On top of that, it's the first book of a rip roarin' tale that's good fun to read.
