It's a compelling read and part of a great series. It mixes fictional characters with the history of the Marine Corps during WWII. Recommended for anyone into military history or even those just looking for a good read.

Like Semper Fi, this one leaves you longing for more. The characters are well developed and charismatic. The historical backdrop is accurate and Griffin does a masterful job using the reality of war to make the reader feel the impending doom of the lost of loved ones.
Once again Dick Hill is wonderful. Somehow, he is exceptional in the feminine voice.
Did I mention it left me wanting more? I've already purchased books 3 & 4 at the used book store!

THAT YOU TRUST ME AND LOVE ME
I listened to book one and wrote a glowing review on it. I bought this book, because I liked book one. At the half way point, we still had not gotten into the war. Seven hours of a military book and no action. Instead the book was a love story. Some of it taken directly out of book one, but in book one where it was a side story, here along with another love story, it takes center stage. I wanted to learn about the war, instead I was told that marines are attracted to sluts and attract sluts.
FOR SOME REASON YOU BRING OUT THE BITCH IN ME.
I mentioned in book one that I found it odd that a boy from Pennsylvania, from a poor home, where he was abused and who went no future then high school would speak Chinese. I also mentioned that the Chinese speak many languages with two main languages and the Chinese often have trouble understanding each other. Someone must have pointed this out to Griffin, cause in this book he says the boy speaks two Chinese languages. This seems even more improbable to me. In this book the second main character is a born pilot. In the past he had no interest in planes at all. We are even told that this happens maybe one in one hundred thousand recruits. The instructor had never seen it until our hero shows up. I have two more Griffin books in my library, I sure hope they are as good as book one of this series and that they are believable and not Chick Lit.
