I'm a former Jarhead, and this book just has the right feel. The author has done a good job of capturing the essential nature of the Corps. On top of that, it's the first book of a rip roarin' tale that's good fun to read.
This is the book that introduced me to W.E.B Griffin
Picked up my first copy in 1987 because it looked interesting. USMC? Ok. Lets give it a try. I’ve read The Corps series four times since, along with the others by the awesome and entertaining author. I’ve just started Semper Fi again this week and it’s just as enthralling as the first time. I plan on going through the entire series again. Was saddened to learn of Mr. Butterworth’s recent passing.
Literally my Favorite book
I've read this book 3 or 4 times now and it was worth every minute.
