In Danger's Path - W.E.B. Griffin

A brilliant book. I am continually in awe of how Griffin can take his strong, relatable characters and interweave them with truly historical people such as Roosevelt, Nimitz, MacArthur et al, and provide the WWII theater and events for them to be in. Pickering and McCoy are charged by the president to establish a weather station in the middle of the Gobi Desert. Following this impossible task alongside all the other players (Weston, Pick, Zimmermann, Banning, and all the women they love), and seeing how it all comes together in the middle of the desert was a real joy, at least for this reader.
