Good continuation of The Corps series, until about halfway through the book. Then, this book becomes impossible to put down. It is this portion of the book that the reader realizes that they are experiencing one of the masters of military and historical fiction at his peak. As with previous Corps books, Griffin takes his characters through situations with the war in the Pacific as the backdrop, and makes the reader really care about what happens to them. This one seemed to ratchet up the tension a bit more as well. Nice job, Mr. Griffin.
