characters and I really love them all when I read these books These novels may not and I really love them all when I read these books These novels may not good for civilians who have no nowledge of the military and are looking for an easier read This one was a good one but I ve found I need to slow down to fully enjoy the story As nice as the first volume of this series Honest Story of a Marine that does not do the stuff we ve already read a million times about loyal but not hyper patriotic very pleasant to read I am trying really hard to
Like These Books The Theme Of This these books The theme of this is wartime WWII in the Pacific The characters are military men and the women in their life The story takes
place in the US for the most part in Florida California New York and Washington I like the story line in the US for the most part in Florida California New York and Washington I like the story line some of the characters however I am not sure I like the author s style First some of the military reference in the book is so technical I find myself skipping over it It does not really interest me and I wonder what value it is adding to the plot The other thing that really annoys me is the author will skip time and move people around Acclaimed BROTHERHOOD OF WAR saga continues the epic story begun in Semper Fi A story of lovers and fighters leaders and heroes the men of the United States Marine Cor.

the novel A military theorist having presidential pull results in the creation and use of specialnovel A military theorist having presidential pull results in the creation and use of special of the US Corps called the Marine Raiders This is the story behind their controversial creation and their first action on a small Pacific island I later learned that this was the second of the ten book Corps Series but reading the first was not necessary to appreciate this one This book was recommended by librarian Nancy Pearl in the World War II Fiction recommendations of Book Lust and was seconded by my appreciation of the author s later book Death and Honor of his Honor Bound Series Read this book years ago love all of this authors books Book 2 of 10 in WEB Griffin s The Corps series Although Griffin always does a very good job catching his readers up to what has already happened in previous installments I still maintain that if one is going to read any of the books in this or any of the author s series you really should go all out and read them all from start to finish So if you happened to grab this book at a garage sale make the small sacrifice of finding and buying book 1 and reading that one firstThere are criticisms of this author s style from both sides of the fence One side claims that he s too technical when it comes to the intricacies of war and goes into far too much detail when describing battle weapons and military jargon The other side claims that these books are really nothing than soap operas with soldiers Both of these criticisms are fair yet I never found the book "to lean too heavily on either side and found the book enjoyable overall This book of "lean too heavily on either side "and found the book enjoyable overall this book " found the book enjoyable overall This book series focuses on a select group of soldiers that are part of the marine corps and tells us a tale of their comings and goings as young men in the early 1940s as World War II begins to grip the nation This small group is young cocky and smarter than most Because of their smarts their actually low grade officers rather than enlisted men How much they age in the next eight volumes I have no idea but in this book their uite green uite adventuresome a tad immature and have an awful lot of sex on the brain This volume takes place during 1942 beginning righ. The attack on Pearl Harbor swept America into the raging heart of the war The stormy South Pacific presented a daring new challenge and the men of the Corps were ready. T after Pearl Harbor was attacked and the US is finding themselves a willing yet slightly scared participant Ironically a book about soldiers in 1942 such as this one features very little actual conflict Yes there is somewhat of a plot The main character Lieutenant Kenneth Killer McCoy is being recruited to be a part of a group of commandos that is led by an individual who is allegedly showing signs of instability as well as possible communistic leanings McCoy s objective is to sniff around and find out if this leader is in fact a threat to the US armed services and the
American Way Of LifeTruthfully Thoughway of lifeTruthfully though s really not much of that story here Instead we read an awful lot of romantic escapades among the soldiers Some are in serious relationships some are in puppy love and others are just looking for a loose woman to frolic with whenever the time seems right So yes there are almost as many women within these pages as the men and you Goldilocks the Three Bears know without a doubt that we ll see these relationships take many ups and downs in the subseuent novelsI should also point out that the fact that younow you re only reading a chapter of a much larger story by completing this book takes away the feeling of incompleteness Had this book been a standalone story most readers would have been rightly let down at the fact that there really isn t a complete story being told here I confess that I m glad that as I m reading this series all of the books have been written I don t think I would enjoy this if it were a new release and I had to wait a whole year or so before I could continue the story The story here is good but not THAT good I would classify this book and all of the other books by this author as light reading They re fun excursions but nothing that will stay in your brain for any length of time nor win any sort of literary awards The story of the 2d Raider Bn s Makin Island raid and the lead up to it told with the usual cast of The Corps It s an amazing story brilliantly told I really got hooked by these Corps books to the detriment of a lot of stuff I should be doing Don t start them unless you have time because they will carry you straight through all of them An excellent book Number two in the series giving me historical nowledge about the immediate aftermath of the bombing of Pearl Harbor I appreciate.
