Retreat, Hell! - W.E.B. Griffin

A satisfying and fitting ending to the Corps series, if somewhat rushed and clunky near the end. I really enjoyed the sections that dealt with the rescue of Pick Pickering and his recuperation in San Diego, as well as Killer McCoy's exposure of Douglas MacArthur's faulty Korean intelligence where China's involvement was concerned. This one flowed much like the previous nine Corps novels, tracking multiple well-developed characters across history, but I get the sense Griffin tried to kind of wrap everything up quickly. This usually leads to a lot of unanswered questions about what happened to certain characters. Maybe this was his intention...to be described in future novels or series? Overall I still immensely enjoyed this series.
