this isn't my first read through of the book, and while I do enjoy the story, there's a couple things I noticed this time. Griffin is ridiculously redundant and the editing is not great.
1)how many "Ernie's" does a series need? two Ed's?
2) is it possible to not "recap" a characters entire history twice in each book? (no other characters middle initial/name is used, so why is Jack Stecker's (sorry... NMI Stecker) every time he shows up?

editing:
at the end of Book One, Ken gets back to the Foster from the Phillipines (and wherever in between) on January 17. the first chunk of Book Two with Ken and Ernie take place on Jan 7-8.
2) Carlson specifically says he doesn't want married men. barely a couple chapters later, McCoy's new married with a kid on the way boatmate is a Raider.
Pretty sure there are other things.
good read. just some holes. ( )

Griffin is a master storyteller. He grabs your interest from the first page and never let's go. His characters are real and you come to love the heroes and hate the villains. This is at least the fourth time I have started reading the series. I highly recommend you become acquainted with this author. You will not be disappointed. ( )

The second installment of the Corps series--2Lts McCoy and Pickering after attack on Pearl Harbor. McCoy goes to DC and is assigned as a spy against renegade LtCol who created the Raiders; the precursor to today's Marine Corps Special Operations. Pickering plops at Pensacola for flight training, becomes a fighter pilot and falls in love with the unattainable woman. Other characters just keep coming back to life. The characters are strong in their relationships, especially among the raiders. Griffin's research is excellent. This book carries the story along and along and along. It answered several questions from book #1 and sets the stage for books 3-10. ( )

'Killer' McCoy is at it again!

In this second installment of the legendary Corps Series, we follow Second Lieutenants McCoy and 'Pick' Pickering after the events of the attacks on Pearl Harbor. McCoy goes to Washington to work for the Marine Corps' Intelligence division and is ultimately assigned to work as a spy against a renegade LtCol named Evans Carlson, who for you history lovers will know as the Marine who created the Raiders; the outfit that eventually became Marine Corps Force Reconnaissance and today is Marine Corps Special Operations. Pick on the otherhand is rather strangely and immediately shipped to Pensacola for training as a Fighter Pilot.

The adventures they find themselves in help shape the path for the start of America's involvement in World War II and prepare you for many more adventures to come while keeping up with Pick and Killer! Bring on the next 8 in the series! ( )

A great deal more military politics than the first book, so less swashbuckling and less gratifying emotionally, but interesting in a different way. Some of our heroes are getting a bit cardboard cut out, but are still appealing despite that. ( )
