No one captures the drama of war as brilliantly as bestselling author W.E.B. Griffin. The Corps is his multi-volume portrait of the Marine Corps, the brave men and women who fought, loved and died in the sweeping turmoil of WW II.
``Volume III of The Corps series covers the period from Pearl Harbor to Guadalcanal in an unorthodox fashion,'' reported PW. ``Instead of offering the usual tales of Marine heroism and sacrifice, Griffin explores the difficult adjustment of enlisted men suddenly given officers' commissions; the raising of a Marine parachute battalion; the impact of total war on peacetime routines.''
