WWII has ended, and the Marines created by W.E.B Griffin in his masterful series, The Corps now find themselves in Korea, learning the hard way that strategic decisions will be made in Washington, not on the battlefield. Reader James Naughton has a daunting task in trying to keep the huge cast of characters distinct, and he succeeds with the primary ones who have been featured throughout The Corps books. Unfortunately, condensing a Griffin novel is not an easy task, and despite Naughton's verbal skills, the action awkwardly skips from one country to another as characters are quickly introduced and just as quickly disappear. Wisely refraining from using overblown accents, Naughton presents the military jargon and the realistic Marine dialogue in a manner that will hold the attention of listeners who have come to regard Griffin as the finest contemporary military writer.
