Scott Brick appears to have become the reader of choice for Griffin's novels about the Marine Corps--and rightfully so. His crisp, no-nonsense narrative style perfectly captures the drama in this military saga. When Brick snaps an order, the listener almost comes to attention. In this eighth in a series, Griffin's familiar WWII Marine heroes are back as the Korean War opens. As Griffin melds real-life figures, like General MacArthur and President Truman, with his fictional characters, the listener learns how the U.S. was caught "flat footed" by the North Korean invasion and how American ingenuity and resourcefulness ultimately saved the day. When you add to this Brick's winsome way of handling the constant banter and sharp dialogue of this compelling story, you have a combination that's hard to beat. A.L.H.
