It is the fall of 1950. The Marines have made a pivotal breakthrough at Inchon, but a roller coaster awaits them. The bit in his teeth, Douglas MacArthur surges across the 38th parallel toward the Yalu River, only to encounter the Chinese in full force, who drive him back in turn. Back and forth, the bloody tides of war shift, and swept along with them are Captain Ken McCoy and Master Gunner Ernie Zimmerman, caught in the fight of their lives; Brigadier General Fleming Pickering, working desperately to mediate the escalating battle between MacArthur and Truman; and Pickering's daredevil pilot son, Malcolm, lost somewhere behind enemy lines, and maybe lost forever.

    " a great start, but way too long. I guess he wanted to write the single greatest book on the korean war. would have worked better as a series. "

    " Good book. Last in the series. Didn't care for the ending. Seems like there should be more. "

    " I've read this whole series "The Corps". Not my usual, but I found myself caught up in the characters, a group of young Marines as they battle from Korea to Vietnam. I always look for Griffin's next book, although I ahven't read the Badge of Honor or Men at War series. "

    " WB Griffin does a better job storytelling a Marine/CIA saga then a cop yarn but nonetheless , he leaves so much action & details out of the book that you come away unsatisfied after finishing. "

    " I really enjoyed this series. I wished some of the story lines were tied together a little tighter at the end. "

    " Better than book 9, definitely some of the old Griffin magic in this one. "

    " Was a great way to wrap up the series.....I was hoping for more details on the characters as they move on in life.....but I will not go into details as I do not want to let anything out.....I did find it a great read and loved it.....wished that there were move in the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Paul | 8/12/2010

    " The only reason I gave this book 4 stars instead of 5 is because I loved the series so much when it was set in WWII. Mr. Griffin threw me a curve when this one came out. After saying this, most of my favorite characters are back and better than ever. A great read. "
